Coburn's rollercoaster ride with California Chrome

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR (CBS 8) - It was quite a ride for California Chrome and owner Steve Coburn.

When Chrome failed to win the Triple Crown, Coburn's emotions got the best of him.

"He was very heated. This is an emotional thing. It's a rollercoaster ride for these people," Del Mar Race Director Tom Robbins said. "It was unfortunate, you know, he was emotional after the race. You would like him to react to what the horse had accomplished and congratulate the winners. That's now how things always play out."

They would eventually play out that way two days later.

Chrome's path to this year's success included two races at Del Mar last summer. Robbins thinks fans might get to see him again this year.

"We would very much hope to have him," he said.

If you are hoping to see a rematch with Tonalist, it's not likely.

"Chances are, no," Robbins said.

Tonalist is a horse from New York, and would likely race at Saratoga.
