California Chrome Owner Steve Coburn Continues to Vent After Belmont Loss

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistJune 8, 2014

Even after having some time to think things over, California Chrome owner Steve Coburn isn't willing to change his stance on the rules of horse racing.

Coburn let his feelings be known after California Chrome missed out on the Triple Crown when he finished fourth at the 2014 Belmont Stakes, going as far as calling others "cowards."

A day later, Coburn's stance had not changed. At one point in his latest interview, he compared horse racing to him playing "basketball against a kid in a wheelchair."

Coburn is obviously frustrated with the result of Saturday's race, but his words are now overshadowing everything that California Chrome accomplished this year.
