Barbaro Updates: 586
updates are now here.
Not too sure what to make of this: Safety Panel to Serve as 'Bully Pulpit'. One of my concerns was the lack of teeth such a panel will have (Safety Panel Needs an Independent Voice) and this piece seems to admit it!
Update 3473: Thursday's Preakness update: Preakness Update: Thursday.
From The York Dispatch: Horse racing industry must try harder to reduce on-track deaths.
Update 3472: Part of the stakes-rich undercard of the Preakness is the second running of the Barbaro Stakes, won last year by the Michael Matz trained Chelokee: Roman Emperor Gets Shot in Barbaro
Update 3471: A chilly windy morning this morning at Woodbine, but once the sun came up it started to warm up a little. What happened to spring around here ? We had eight sets, four before the break and four after the break. Three of those after the break went to the gate for some gate schooling. All my horses went nicely. No dramatics for today which is a relief after the last couple of days!
Update 3470: Big Brown who has been put in as 1 - 2 favorite, but will likely go off at shorter odds than that, has post position 7 for the Preakness: Big Brown Draws Post Position 7.
Please keep calling and writing.
