After California Chrome won the 2014 Preakness Stakes, owner Steve Coburn used his platform to take a shot at Churchill Downs. Coburn praised the hospitality at Pimlico, saying that Churchill should take a lesson from it. Looks like he was smitten with Charm City.
As ESPN’s Darren Rovell notes, Coburn may have to make amends with the Derby’s top brass if Chrome ends up winning the Triple Crown.
Funny that Steve Coburn took a shot at the Derby. If Chrome wins the Belmont, he’ll need Churchill for licensing deals.
