Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 07, 2014

California Chrome could become the 12th Triple Crown champion with a win in the Belmont Stakes in New York at 6:52 p.m. Eastern Saturday evening. The last to achieve the fear was Affirmed in 1978, 36 years ago. Chrome will start one spot from the inside rail for the mile-and-a-half race -- the longest Triple Crown event. "I know it'll be tougher going a mile and a half, but this horse is a good horse. I think he's the real McCoy," said trainer Art Sherman.

There's a little trick of entering a "fresh" horse in the third leg of the Triple Crown to try and beat the odds-on favorite. They're called "king killers" in race track vernacular. It's considered unethical but it's not illegal.

The purpose is to raise the stud value of the "king killer" for future breeding purposes.

The owner affirmed my belief that if you put a grown man who wears a cowboy hat with his suit in the spotlight long enough, he will inevitably make a total jackass of himself.
