After watching Barbaroís breakdown in the Preakness Stakes, my enthusiasm for racing, like that of many others who love it, suffered a crushing blow. For the first time in thirty years of painting Thoroughbred racing, I had lost my enthusiasm. While other artists hurried to paint Barbaro, I didnít know if I could paint this horse, or any other horse ever again. My feelings, along with most of the industry, were that Barbaro was not going to survive this type of injury.

Then something strange happened. The combination of a dedicated animal hospital, a race horse with an amazing spirit, and the eternal hope of his owners caused me to look at this tragic event in a much more positive light.

At this time, no one knows the future of this very special horse, but because I am a story teller, I knew that I had to paint him, if only to show the dogged determination of both man and animal in the fight for his survival
