Like many, I got to see this epic rant live, and it’s amazing what people say when they’re pissed off. Never mind that this has been going on for years, as some horses show up in the Belmont Stakes to thwart a Triple Crown. That’s why it’s so damn hard.
The debates on Twitter were priceless and also informative, as those who understood horse racing explained why Steve Coburn’s rant about some taking “the coward’s way out” was just silly given the nature of the sport.
The great horses are able to overcome the task of winning three straight. Heck, some great horses don’t even achieve it given the competition in the year they run.
Still, the reaction was priceless and will be replayed for years to come.
