California Chrome's co-owner has a right to speak his mind, but that doesn't mean he should, Bill Finley writes.
With another Triple Crown bust now in the history books, the hue and cry will begin all over again to change the series.
There are many reasons to pick against California Chrome in Saturday's Belmont Stakes, so that's what I'll do.
Bill sits down for a Q&A with the Triple Crown gods.
They are 12 different horses, but they all share the same story. Each was close to Triple Crown history but came up short in New York.
The wiseguys dismissed California Chrome in the Preakness, arguing that he was the luckiest horse on the track Derby Day where his trip was as smooth as expensive whiskey.
Don't tell D. Wayne Lukas the odds or the percentages, he knows how to win when it counts.
On paper, the Preakness looks like an easy assignment for Kentucky Derby winner Orb, but there's one horse that can beat him.
When Tom Hessert attended the 2011 Preakness he left realizing the horse racing industry had failed to take advantage of a tremendous opportunity.
The Preakness is usually the antithesis of the Kentucky Derby. It's a race where form holds up, there's not much in the way of surprises and the contenders come through.

The Preakness was just another reminder of why there are a lot more broken-down horseplayers out there than rich ones.
Ahmed Zayat is the latest to become convinced that race horses shouldn't race, at least not more than four or five times a year and never without five weeks or more between races.
The Belmont stakes may not have the Kentucky Derby or Preakness winners, but it might just include the best 3-year-old in America. Ice Box is that good, and he should win Saturday.
It's not the Triple Crown that needs fixing, but the horses that run in the Triple Crown.
It's a bit hard to separate the top two horses in the Preakness.
