KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. (AP) -- Amid the public outpouring of sympathy for Barbaro and his owners' hopes that "someday all of you will be able to see little Barbaros running around the track," there remains an underlying question:

"If this horse could have absolutely no reproductive value, they would have saved this horse's life."
