2007: Thoroughbred racehorse Barbaro, who decisively won the 2006 Kentucky Derby, but shattered his leg two weeks later in the 2006 Preakness Stakes, is euthanized. The broken leg ruined any chance of a Triple Crown in 2006 and ended his racing career. He underwent seven surgeries before his veterinarians and owners concluded that he could not be saved.
