I'm so saddened to hear of his passing. I know it was for the best, but that doesn't make it much easier to swallow the news. He truly touched me and so many others ... what a brave and spirited soul he was!

I was so sad to hear this! Along with so many others, I have been following Barbaro''s progress and hoping for his recovery- and up until this weekend reports indicated that he was doing well. There was even talk of him being released in the near future...it''s such a shame that he took a turn for the worse. Rest in peace Barbaro...you put up a brave fight, and touched so many!

Very sad news. Like Ellen I thought he was going to pull through.

At least he is out of pain now.

I am sad and relieved for the horse. Poor fella... as soon as I heard about the other back leg, I knew he was on his way out.

I have monitored Barbaro''s progress literally every day and feel like someone close to me is gone.

It''s always great to get to see that rare horse go the distance. Win the Triple Crown. Barbero could have, should have been that horse.

In all our years of following horse races, I don''t ever recall seeing a horse ambulance brought onto the track. We knew that alone was a bad sign, but hoped for the best.

I hate that they had to put him down. But I''d rather him be at peace than in pain.
