A Jockey's Love for Barbaro

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

Jockey Edgar Prado was riding Barbaro in the 2006 Preakness when the horse stumbled and shattered a leg; he says that Barbaro was his "friend, teammate, and hero." His new book is My Guy Barbaro. Mr. Prado also rode in this past Saturday’s Kentucky Derby and saw firsthand that race’s tragic end when Eight Belles had to be put down.

Wonderful to hear Mr.Edgar Prado speaking, as the whole horse mystique is essentially silent and he has spent his whole life out there, thinking hard.
