Barbaro Still Feels ‘Un-saddled’ By Horse-Racing Accident

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s been five days since Barbaro the thoroughbred horse suffered an ankle injury during the Preakness Stakes and, so far, no one has gotten the horse’s view of the tragedy.

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, “It’s 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 he’s unable to live a normal life but Lozito insists Barbaro still has the will to live, although, she concedes, “he’s 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.”
