It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed since Barbaro emerged as a Kentucky Derby contender with his win in the 2006 Holy Bull Stakes at Gulfstream Park. With the 2016 edition of the Holy Bull scheduled to be run on January 30th, now seems like the perfect time to take a moment and relive Barbaro’s win in the Holy Bull by watching the replay of the race. Enjoy!
