"BARBARO: A NATION'S HORSE" TO PREMIERE IN PRIMETIME ON NBC SATURDAY 8 PM ET

NEW YORK � May 1, 2007 � NBC Sports' critically acclaimed documentary "Barbaro: A Nation's Horse" will premiere in primetime on NBC Saturday, 8 p.m. ET. "Barbaro" was scheduled to debut Sunday, but was pre-empted due to extended live coverage of the double-overtime Sabres-Rangers NHL playoff game.

THE CRITICS ARE TALKING

"The emotions of this hour rise and soar like the passions of a close race." � New York Daily News

"Four stars." � New York Post

"Barbaro: A Nation's Horse is, simply, one of the most emotionally involving hours aired on network television this season." � Rocky Mountain News

"Painful, poignant and sweet." � Las Vegas Review Journal

"NBC does a masterful job telling the tale of Barbaro." � Albany Times Union

"NBC has done an excellent job." � San Diego Union Tribune

"Barbaro: A Nation's Horse" looks back at the thoroughbred's impressive six and a half length win at the Derby, his dramatic injury and his amazing will to live that captured the imagination of the public. The film also examines Barbaro's legacy and impact on the future of horse racing. The show includes new footage of Barbaro's baby brother, who was born on April 20. The as-yet unnamed foal shares both parents with the late Derby champion � maybe one day he too could race for the roses at Churchill Downs.

"Barbaro" is produced by Emmy Award winner Rob Hyland; Dick Ebersol serves as executive producer.
