Steve Coburn, the co-owner of California Chrome, is real sorry about all the steamin' and hollerin' he's been doing in the days since his horse failed to win the Triple Crown. To prove it, Coburn and his wife went on Good Morning America, where the mustachioed old man wept and apologized the same way a horndog politician does when he gets caught with his pants down.


Let's hope this is the last we see of Steve Coburn for a while, because this is starting to get absurd. His initial saltiness was way over the top—Tonalist, the horse that beat California Chrome, only missed the Kentucky Derby because a lung infection knocked him out of a qualifying race—and so is this apology. Steve Coburn should just take a vacation and cool out for a bit.
