Fans back California Chrome's cause

Finally someone (Steve Coburn) had the guts to say out loud how ridiculous it is to let horses who have not raced in the Derby and the Preakness to run in what is the hardest of the three races. What does it prove except that a well-rested horse has a great chance of besting a horse who has raced twice in the last five weeks. Why don't we just let any team compete for the Super Bowl, the World Series and the NBA championship without having to earn their way to the finals? That sounds ridiculous and it is, but it is allowed in the "sport of kings." California Chrome only was beaten by 13/4 lengths by horses that had rested while he ran. He's the winner to me.
