(NYSportscene.com) California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn freaked out when his horse California Chome lost to Tonalist this afternoon. He was specifically angered over the fact that Tonalist did not run in the Kentucky Derby or the Preakness.
Coburn, said it was a “coward’s way out” that horses who have not run the other two Triple Crown races can come in fresh and win the Blemont Stakes.
“It’s all or nothing. It’s not fair to these horses that are running their guts out. This is a cowards’ way out,” Coburn said. “If you’ve got a horse that earns points, that runs in the Kentucky Derby, those horses should be the only ones who should run in all three races.”
