Barbaro update

Thoroughbred champion horse Barbaro, grievously injured in the Preakness Stakes, continues to recover nicely.
Kentucky Derby champion Barbaro continues to eat his hay, look out his window and take an interest in mares around him, one of his owners said yesterday.

Gretchen Jackson said she saw the recovering thoroughbred yesterday morning at the University of Pennsylvania's George D. Widener Hospital for Large Animals, in Kennett Square, where he has been since his breakdown in the May 20 Preakness Stakes.

"He continues to make remarkable improvement," she said. With mares and foals in nearby stalls, "He has a lot of entertainment," she said.
