California Chrome owner blasts rivals for 'coward's shot' at Triple Crown
The owner of California Chrome – the horse defeated at the Belmont Stakes - lashed out at rivals Sunday, accusing them of taking "the coward's way out" by skipping the first two legs of the Triple Crown.
Steve Coburn told NBC’s TODAY show said the sport’s rules should be changed so that only horses that run in the Kentucky Derby should be eligible to compete in the other two legs of the Triple Crown.
“There’s more trainers and owners that do not want to see a Triple Crown than those who do,” he told Erica Hill in an exclusive interview. “Yesterday was a fine example of that.”
