I'm sure you will see this on the telecast of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday but check this out: the new statue of Barbaro outside the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs features a larger than life sculpture of the 2006 winner...and not one of his feet touches the ground! The sculpture is somehow suspended from the rail so the horse flies. Thanks to lucky-to-be-there New York photographer Sarah K. Andrew for sharing this photo.
