    The instant reply shows him REALLLY swinging his leg FAR out to the right and hopping and no weight...then the jockey pulls him up. From the front replay it was very bizarre.

    He is one the trailer and they are interviewing the vet who saw him first. He (Dr Michael Brabdage) says it is a "very serious, significant injury" He also said "I am pretty sure it is a career ending injury". Not life ending but looks career ending for sure".

    A vet or someone just spoke and estimated it to be career ending. I just hope he recovers!

    They are leavving the track and he is in the trailer with about 6-8 people..MICHAEL TOO...and they are trying to get him to stand quiet. Vet said that will be pretty much impossible since the adrinaline is high and he is still crazy from the excitement of the race.

    Poor Barbero. My fingers are crossed. My heart goes out to Michael Matz. The Replay did not look good. :-(
