Always Show Class in Your Business Dealings

Sportsmanship shows class. With the defeat of California Chrome came a barrage of whining by the owner about the rules. Coburn asserted that being defeated by a horse that did not run the Derby or Preakness and had more rest somehow cheated.

Coburn said on Saturday that the horses that skipped the first two races of the Triple Crown only to compete in the Belmont Stakes are “cheaters” who took the “coward’s way out.” Tonalist did not race in the Kentucky Derby or Preakness.

This takes a lot away from storybook aura of the average guy buying a cheap horse and going all the way. His moaning destroys the sympathy vote. Remember that.

Be gracious in defeat.
