EVENING THE SNORE: Victor Espinoza, the jockey for California Chrome, appeared on CBS' "The Late Show" last night, and host David Letterman brought up the nasal strip controversy. He asked, "Everybody made a big deal about the nose tape, anything there?” Espinoza replied, “I’m not really a genius with that, but it’s supposed to help them breathe a little.” Letterman: “I’ve used those. Do you ever use those to help you sleep at night?” Espinoza: “No, because I don’t snore at night. I think the ones that snore at night need them.” Letterman: “That’s good advice, thanks” (“Late Show,” CBS, 6/4).
