Despite encouraging signs, concerns remain high for Barbaro (http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/sports/14645701.htm)
Barbaro's one leg is now almost as famous as Betty Grable's two.

The morning after the Kentucky Derby winner underwent successful surgery on his badly broken right hind leg, his doctor made appearances on national morning television shows and no doubt the amazingly intricate framework of plate and screws used to repair Barbaro's leg will be studied by veterinarians around the country.
