They keep saying on the radio how they're hopeful that Barbaro can have a career as a stallion.
Having held that job for a while, I can say that it's not all it's advertised to be. And I can't imagine that mares are much less demanding than human women.
Also, wouldn't the offspring of a horse that shatters its leg in three places, simply because it was running, be worth about the same as, I dunno, something else that's obviously useless?
I'm just saying.
