KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. -- When the demands that come with owning Barbaro become too much, Gretchen Jackson simply goes to see her horse. "I go there and just sit down in the bedding in his stall and talk to him," she said last week. "He's a very gentle stallion. He allows me to be able to do that, and I find it very relaxing. I look at those legs and think about what they were able to do, to think how they carried him to victory in the Kentucky Derby." Today marks six months since Barbaro, the Kentucky Derby winner by 6 1/2 lengths, shattered his right rear leg in the Preakness at Pimlico Race Course and began a long road to recovery at the George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center.

Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro got another positive review yesterday and took another small step in his recovery, according to Dr. Dean Richardson, chief of surgery at the University of Pennsylvania's George D. Widener Hospital. "He had an excellent week," Richardson said about the horse who is recovering from the broken rear right leg he suffered in the May 20 Preakness and from the ensuing complication of laminitis, an inflammation, in his left hind foot. "We replaced the boot on his left hind foot with a bandage because the hoof is doing well."

It has been a tumultuous week for the Kentucky Derby winner who pulled up in the Preakness, but yesterday his veterinary surgeon provided two separate encouraging updates that were markedly different in tone than the ominous prognosis he delivered Thursday. "His vital signs, including heart rate and pulse, remain good," Dr. Dean Richardson said in a statement released by the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine at 4 p.m. yesterday.
