Barbaro's Holy Grail will be auctioned on Kentucky Derby Eve this year:

[Edgar] Prado donated the saddle to the Jockeys' Guild and proceeds from the sale of the saddle will go to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, a division of National Thoroughbred Racing Association Charities. There are 58 severely injured jockeys receiving vital assistance each month from the fund.

Barbaro's effects are even healing poor souls beyond the grave – he truly is the king of kings.  Only Dan Brown may be able to decipher the cryptogram that Prado (of Cyrene) inscribed on the underside of the saddle depicting which vessel is the bona fide bearer of the holy horse's sanctity: the saddle or Dee Mirich. -KD
