Barbaro Memorial in Churchill Downs

In April of 2009 Churchill Downs unveiled a 1500 pound Bronze Statue of Barbaro.
The Statue, which has Barbaro's ashes in the base, was placed outside Gate 1 so the public can visit him anytime.
This shows a lot of class by Churchill Downs people.
Barbaro, if one remembers, was the winner of the 2006 Kentucky Derby but broke his leg during the Preakness that same year. On January 29th of 2007 he was taken from the Racing World.
