    The owners of the winner, California Chrome, Perry Martin and Steve Coburn, say they knew they had the winner the day the colt was foaled.

    They were called many things the day they proclaimed the horse of their dreams would be something very special, including the moniker “dumb ass!”

    That’s the day that DAP Stables (Dumb Ass Partners) was born. They even decided to put a donkey on their silks.
