Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino owns a 5% stake in the thoroughbred race horse Goldencents.
Goldencents will be running in the 2013 Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 4th. He has started at 5-1 odds and will be racing from the No. 8 post position.
Pitino is a big fan of racing and has owned several other horses. Basketball and horse racing is interwined for the coach. Some of his horses have been named for his players. And he used to take recruits out to see Secretariat at Claiborne Farm back in the day.
Can a March Madness win continue with a May Madness win for coach Pitino?
