The Barbaro Documentary

Tonight NBC airs "Barbaro: A Nation's Horse" at 5pm. It will be interesting to see which way they go with it. Will they provide an interesting story with people and horses that engage new fans and draw them to the sport, or will it push viewers into the camp that believes racing is a gruesome game that tortures horses?

The trailer suggests that there will no new ground broken for fans that have followed the story, but the interviews with Gretchen and Roy Jackson, Dr. Dean Richardson, Mike Matz and Peter Brette may be interesting.

Come back and leave a comment with your thoughts on the show.

I am anxious to see "The First Saturday in May" by John and Brad Hennegan. This will likely be the definitive fan's view of the Barbaro story.

Never mind. "Let at the Gate's" New York Rangers decided to take two overtimes to stay alive against the Sabres and pre-empted the Barbaro documentary. As the hockey game ended, the announcer said that the Barbaro show will be played Friday at 9pm.
