On May 6, 2006, millions watched with awe as Barbaro completed a remarkable performance for a convincing 6 ½ length victory at the 132nd running of the Kentucky Derby. Many believed Barbaro would go on to become the first horse since 1978 to win the coveted Triple Crown, the pinnacle of horse racing. Then, just two weeks later, millions watched with horror as Barbaro suffered a tragic injury at the beginning of the Preakness Stakes. Suddenly, a story of anticipated invincibility became a story of survival.
Barbaro struggled to overcome all odds….he captured the hearts and imagination of a country, not seen since the following enjoyed by the great Seabiscuit. NBC Sports is proud to present this very special DVD celebrating this inspirational story.
