    Rob Gronkowski purchases stake in Gronkowski horse

     

    The New England Patriots tight end has purchased a minority stake in a thoroughbred that he shares at least one thing in common with — his name. The five-time All-Pro now holds a minority stake in Gronkowski (the horse) just weeks before the three-year-old colt is scheduled to run in the Kentucky Derby, according to the Wall Street Journal. Gronkowski’s handlers (again, the horse) used the name since the horse’s “big and strong” 6-foot-5 frame reminds them of the Patriots star.

    Gronkowski, for his part, seems pretty excited about his investment.

    “I’ve never dealt with horses,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “Hopefully I can get a ride on the horse. … I’m not trying to ride it for a full speed ride. I just want to get the feel of what it’s like to be on top of one. Maybe I’ll go for a full speed ride once I get comfortable.”

    Joking (hopefully) aside, it only makes sense that Gronkowski the player and Gronkowski the horse would cross paths at some point. Whether it becomes a good omen during this year’s Run for the Roses remains to be seen.

    It’s official, I am part of the Gronkowski Team! GRONK ACQUIRES A STAKE IN GRONK … THE KENTUCKY DERBY-BOUND RACEHORSE! Check it out:
