After winning the 139th Preakness on Saturday, California Chrome co-owner Steve Coburn went out of his way to praise the hospitality he received while in Baltimore this week. But he also made some pointed remarks about the way his group was treated two weeks earlier at Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby. While he wouldn't go into great detail, he said the treatment there factored in his co-owner Perry Martin's decision not to attend the Preakness. “The hospitality we received at Churchill Downs wasn't very good, and Perry Martin, he decided that he and his family were going to watch the race some [other]

ELMONT, N.Y. - There's an old saying in horse racing that all men are equal on the turf and under it. Put another way, this sport confounds sheiks and scions of American dynasties who drop millions of dollars in futile efforts to breed a Kentucky Derby winner. Meanwhile, two neophytes can spend $10,000 to breed a horse for the first time and come within a whisker of the Triple Crown. That's California Chrome's story as he prepares to chase racing's signature achievement in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

California Chrome has a bit of Hollywood in him. Just a few steps into his first afternoon at Pimlico Race Course on Monday, the Kentucky Derby champion stopped and posed regally before a pack of photographers click, click, clicking. The handsome chestnut seemed to relish his turn as the Brad Pitt of Preakness week. “I think he loves it,” said assistant trainer Alan Sherman. “He'll sit out there and pose all day. He loves the cameras and the attention.” California Chrome is certainly used to the glare after winning the Kentucky Derby as a heavy favorite and horse of the people.

A day after California Chrome won the Preakness, his trainer raised the startling possibility he might not try for the Triple Crown because of New York rules barring a nasal adhesive strip the colt has used in recent races. If California Chrome were to win the Belmont Stakes on June 7, he'd capture the first Triple Crown in 36 years. The possibility that the charismatic horse will pull off the sport's signature achievement has the thoroughbred racing world abuzz. For years, racing lovers have said the sport needs a superstar in the mold of Secretariat or Seattle Slew to mitigate declines in attendance and mainstream interest.

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.

LOUISVILLE, KY. - Art Sherman looked dazed, perhaps still a bit uncertain that fate had handed him such a magnificent gift after six decades of devotion to racehorses. A few feet away, Steve Coburn's voice caught with emotion as he spoke of those who didn't believe. Perry Martin wiped tears from his eyes, hugging a relative who shouted: “Oh my God, what a ride! Just like you called it!” For these men, California Chrome had long been the horse of dreams. And against the classic backdrop of Churchill Downs, the rest of the world finally caught up to their vision.
