Barbaro: The Horse Who Captured America's Heart


As millions watched Barbaro win the 2006 Kentucky Derby in sweeping style, their hearts skipped a beat. Here was a horse born to run, a horse of destiny. Not since Secretariat had so many people anticipated the future coronation of a Triple Crown winner —a king of Thoroughbreds. The story was made even sweeter by that of his trainer — former Olympic show jumper Michael Matz who had survived a horrific plane crash and saved three children. On Preakness day, here was Matz saddling the horse everyone believed had wings. The story seemed almost too good to be true. Almost. A misstep shattered Barbaro's right hind leg and dashed any Triple Crown dreams. It also put Barbaro's very life on the line. But Barbaro's remarkable recovery amid setbacks and complications has earned him new fans around the world. Here is the truly remarkable and inspiring story of a horse, his trainer, and veterinary science on the cutting edge of technolgy. Hardcover, 189 pages
