After a weekend of calling fellow horse owners "cowards" and "cheaters" for running fresh entrants in the Belmont Stakes, California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn said Monday that he needed to apologize "to the world," including the connections of winner Tonalist. Appearing on "Good Morning America" with his wife, Carolyn, Coburn told host Robin Roberts that "I'm very ashamed of myself. " California Chrome was trying to become the 12 th Triple Crown winner in Saturday's Belmont, but he finished tied for fourth . Tonalist, a horse who skipped the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes because he spiked a fever before the Derby, won a close race over Commissioner, another horse who didn't run in the first two legs of the Triple Crown.

ELMONT, N.Y. - As California Chrome began his recovery from a foot injury that might have contributed to his flat performance in the Belmont Stakes, his co-owner, Steve Coburn, stood by harsh comments about owners and trainers who run fresh horses in the third leg of the Triple Crown. An unrepentant Coburn said the Belmont, which pitted numerous fresh horses against a tired California Chrome, was "like me, at 6-foot-2, playing basketball with a kid in a wheelchair. " Coburn had become one of the stars of California Chrome's Triple Crown quest with his bold predictions of victory and his talk of representing the little guy in a sport full of blue bloods.

On the face of it, Coburn's Tavern & Grill is like a lot of other bars in Canton: stripped down to the basics and boisterously noisy, especially when the Ravens are playing. The basics in this case are two bars on two floors, plain wood furniture and bare wood flooring, exposed brick walls and about a zillion TVs. It's your typical bar, although the upstairs has been recently renovated. But Coburn's takes the notion of bar food to a whole new level. In the breast of owner George Platis lurks the heart of a serious chef.

D.L. Coburn used to be one nasty card player. Consider the time he was playing gin with a friend on a business trip in Cuernavaca, Mexico."This guy was beating the pants off of me. I couldn't believe it. I couldn't win no matter what I did. It was getting infuriating. It was getting late at night, but I had to keep him at that table," Coburn says, with just a hint of wicked delight in his voice."I looked up and saw the chandelier beginning to shake. I immediately knew we were getting tremors there, but I didn't say anything until he started to notice it, and I said, 'Shut up, Frank.

ELMONT, N.Y. - California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn spent the past five weeks captivating America with his folksy charm and a shoot-from-the-hip style that seemed refreshing until he shot himself in the foot on Saturday. Instead of expressing his great pride in a low-budget horse that captured the imagination of the nation and nearly became the first horse in 36 years to win horse racing's Triple Crown, Coburn blasted the format that forced his horse to face several Kentucky Derby rivals who rested through the Preakness and crowned a new Belmont Stakes champion who had not run since May 10. He called the strategy "a coward's way out" during a nationally televised interview that wasn't folksy or charming.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Steve Coburn proudly calls himself a working man, and he'll tell you upfront that he was insulted when a rich stable owner offered him millions of dollars for the racehorse who'd eaten cookies from his hand as a gangly 3-month-old. "Somebody who's got that much money, just to think they can step in and buy something people have worked so hard to get to?" Coburn said. "To me, that was a slap in the face. The no was easy. Not just 'no,' but 'hell no.'" It might seem strange, the idea of a populist hero as clear favorite in Saturday's Kentucky Derby , a race that fires the dreams of multi-millionaire horsemen around the world.

A Baltimore medical researcher has earned the dubious distinction of landing on a national hit list of questionable stimulus projects. But criticism of her work by a pair of Republican senators might have missed the mark. "Stimulus Checkup," a watchdog report prepared by Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and released in conjunction with Sen. John McCain of Arizona, gives a misleading explanation of a research project involving the highly addictive drug methamphetamine. Coburn and McCain, the Senate's leading critics of wasteful pork-barrel spending, accuse the federal government of awarding University of Maryland researchers "nearly $30,000 to determine whether methamphetamine gives female rats an overpowering desire to have sex."

Jason Tucker Coburn, 19, of the 300 block of Dutchship Road and Michael Joseph Medura, 21, of the 8300 block of Forest Drive were pronounced dead at the scene after their 2003 Dodge Ram 3500 failed to negotiate a curve on Mountain Road, crossed the center line and struck a large tree. The truck kept going, cutting through several front yards and spinning until it hit a second tree and came to a stop in a front yard in the 4400 block of Mountain Road, near Meehling Road.

The most rabid opera fans don't really need the luxury of sets and costumes, let alone any trendy directorial concepts, to enjoy the art form. They can be perfectly content with an audio-only format. For more than 20 years, that format has been the specialty of Washington Concert Opera, which served up quite an earful Sunday night - a hot performance of Bellini's melody feast, I Puritani, that packed George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium. This is a work particularly well-suited to concert-style delivery, since the plot, a romantic entanglement involving Puritans and Cavaliers, is not exactly brimming over with theatrical incident.
