I don't follow horse racing at all, nor do I have any interest in the Kentucky Derby. But I wasn't surprised when I heard that the Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro broke its leg in the Preakness. Not too long ago, I watched a 60-Minutes episode on ESPN Classic (from way back in 1979) that discussed horse doping, and its surprisingly legal status in the world of horse racing. Apparently, horse owners drug their horses with pain-killing "medication," allowing them to run a race even when they really shouldn't. It's a shame that this kind of thing goes on, especially since horses can't tell people how they feel. Hopefully this tragic turn with Barbaro will be the wake-up call the horse racing world needs.
