Ok first off I want to say that Yes I was a Barbaro fan & Yes I was touched by the overwhelming fan reaction to Barbaro's fatal injury back in the Preakness of '06. But this thing every year or every other year of touting the full brothers of Barbaro as some type of lock to make the Ky-Derby is a little ridiculous.
Sure it would make a great story if one of Barbro's lil bro's were to make & Win the Ky-Derby, but making them the favorite for each race they race in based on what Barbaro did is in a word "Stupid".
Thats right Lentenor was bet down to the $4-5 Fav yesterday & was promptly beat by a $7-1 shot. My only regret is that I didnt bet more on the winner, as it was a perfect set-up to Lentenor being a False-Fav as there ever has been.
Still the media wants to see a link to Barbaro so badly that every time one of his brothers run they act as if its the next coming of Barbaro II, which of course is total fantasy. I'm sure players on this board dont view any of Barbaro's lil-bro's the way the media has portrayed them, so heres hoping some of these writers will stop hypeing the Barbaro siblings next time they run.
