    Seriously unbelievable. Those comments are as low class as it gets. Wish I would have bet the exacta on my intrigueing horses.

    Still in disbelief over that idiots comments. That is why it takes a special horse to win it. His 15 minutes are up. Fuming.

    It was funny when a female member of his party, wife maybe?, was apparently telling him to cool and he yells "I don't care!"

    I swear he is worse than the Taylors who owned Seattle Slew. They were also idiots that caught lightning in the bottle. Lottery ticket at best.

    He's going to look even more foolish. They found that California Chrome grabbed his right front coming out of the gate and ran the entire race on the injury. Lucky he finished as well as he did.

    2:03 in the KY Derby was slow but good enough this year. Wanted to see him win it is nice that it didn't happen because his one owner showed his true colors.

    To bad to see poor losers and there are not even any judges.

    Well I came darn close I didn't want to jinx my pics so I took pics of the tickets to prove how I bet the race. I may not have won but I handicapped the last two races correctly First, Third, Fourth

    I agree with Tim: I am embarrassed and disappointed in the one owner of CChrome and his totally classless act, his horse got beat fair and square...like one of the other owners commented prior to the race "...this isnt the Tour de France and some coronation, you have to actually win the race.."

    I also think that ESPN was a great shill for the NYRA, apparently CChrome had almost 9MM bet on him...

    It was a great story until the owner screwed up the fairy tale ending...shameful
