Like so many of those who find themselves in the category, nouveau riche, the comedy team of Martin and Coburn (Perry Martin and Steve Coburn) are struggling with both their new-found fame and figuring out how to juggle that fame with fortune and the ownership of a wonderful Thoroughbred.
I never much cared for Steve Coburn. Everyone’s allowed their opinions, but I sat back during the weeks leading up to the Kentucky Derby and observed. I was amused, sure: it’s always nice to read a story about “little guys” who strike gold. Or oil, a’la “The Beverly Hillbillies.”
