Barbaro, We Remember...


Lost in the excitement of elections, Super Bowls, and arrested Airborners, Tuesday marked the one year anniversary of DudeSpins favorite horse. Head Dude, especially, was touched by the courage and heart demonstrated by the near Triple Crowner.

According to The Onion, Barbaro's ghost appeared to teach us a lesson.

Here's a tough question: if Barbaro came back and ran for president, who would you vote for, Obama or Barbaro?

I was DudeSpin's harshest critic when it came to Barbaro-mania. However, as my new employer also will present one of the largest schedules of thoroughbred racing anywhere in the country beginning in two weeks, I have reluctantly been pulled aboard the horse racing bandwagon. Watch DudeSpin as we get closer to the Kentucky Derby for Triple Crown analysis!

Also, it's worth mentioning that betting on horse races is probably the easiest way to receive comps from the Las Vegas casinos...
