Until now, that is.
New York-based animal communicator Donna Lozito has been in telepathic communication with Barbaro since before the race.
Now, she claims the accident occurred because Barbaro was wound up like a rubber band before the race and feeding off his owners anxieties.
As she puts it, Its almost like having too much coffee.
Lozito says Barbaro feels like he let everyone down but says the horse kept trying to tell everyone how he was feeling.
There has been talk about putting the horse down if hes unable to live a normal life but Lozito insists Barbaro still has the will to live, although, she concedes, hes heavily sedated.
Still, Lozito says Barbaro does have a message for other race horses who may be feeling unsaddled by their career. In her words, Our version of a hyped horse race is not necessarily what equals a winner.
