OMG...thank you for this account.  I can't even imagine. Oh how I wish I was there for the unveiling, being so close to Barbaro, seeing the Jackson, Michael Matz...way too much for me to get a grasp on....

i started bawling when they opened the whole show with his Derby....i fell for him that March but at the derby when he was looking to see around the turn and flicked those ears and just flew home he captured me forever.....can you imagine the bugler doing my old kentucky home?? mr. jackson in particular looked close to tears......looked like a good size group..................

I've been brooding all weekend missing this; they mentioned the FOBs many times on HRTV;  said Mrs. Jackson recognized us. the statue is just beautiful!   Can you just imagine the thrill of it?  The FOBs probably cheered loudly as the drape came off.   Plus they keep showing his victory.  Such a beauty.   The tears are still flowing for our Barbaro.

isn't he?? i love harty's quote about him being colonel john's bro(or half-can't remember) saying Mr. Hot Stuff is "colonel john on meth"  ;o) i have just loved watching him run at santa anita and each race he got better and better and he will love the distance....and he is so aptly named--he can strut his stuff can't he?  ;o)

And I missed the whole thing!  Got busy and lost track of the time, turned it on just in time to hear someone speaking off camera and crowd noise while the HRTV folks wound up their coverage.

Maybe I can see it tonight on the Rewind show.  Hope somebody did a video.
