BOSTON (CBS) – We all still wonder what the future holds for Rob Gronkowski, though it is likely that he will still have touchdowns for the Patriots when the 2018 season rolls around.
But while we sit and wait patiently for Gronk to play football (for anyone) or throw elbows in the wrestling ring, we know that a horse sharing his name runs in Churchill Downs in May
According to Darren Rovell From ESPN, a horse named "Gronkowski" won the Burradon Stakes in England and qualified for this year's Kentucky Derby.
No word on whether the horse prized a wreath or chugged a few beers after the race for the track, but this development makes Gronkowski's annual trip to Kentucky (along with Tom Brady, Julian Edelman and other past and present patriots) more interesting.
