  • Chuck Harper: Dreams come true for DAP

    Many of us witnessed the outcome of Kentucky Derby Saturday.

    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.

  • California Chrome leaves no doubt in dominant Derby

    LOUISVILLE – Critiques of California Chrome were spoken ever since the 3-year-old colt arrived at Churchill Downs Monday morning.
