Mike Battaglia is a horse racing analyst for NBC who covered the Belmont Stakes.
Mike joined Ed and Steve to talk about California Chrome coming up just short of winning the Triple Crown and the reaction of co-owner Steve Coburn.
Mike began by talking about owner Steve Coburn and how he feels about his comments. Mike said it’s unfortunate that Coburn came out at that time when his horse ran two great races to leave a bad taste in everybody’s mouth with his negative comments. Mike said California Chrome ran great but just got beat by a horse who ran better on that day.
