With a chance to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978, California Chrome shit the bed and finished in fourth place. CC got off to a nice start and then found itself in fourth pretty much the entire race even after making a final push in the last turn. Owner Steve Coburn was interviewed after the race and was not happy. Take a listen.
What a bitch. The best part of this clip is when he told his wife to shut the fuck up and sit down. I understand where Coburn is coming from, but if you want to be the best, you need to beat the best. Does that even make sense in this situation? Whatever the case may be, when you have history on the line you go out and seize the moment. The jockey should be fired immediately, and wouldn’t be surprised if California Chrome never runs another race again. Thanks for the sound clip Steve.
