Recently, Rob Gronkowski acquired a stake in the racehorse named after him, Gronkowski. Unfortunately for both of them, Gronkowski will be held out of the highly anticipated Kentucky Derby due to an illness.
On Monday, Gronk issued a statement, expressing his support for the move and highlighting that, above all, the horse’s health is the most important thing.
It’s unfortunate Gronkowski the horse will not be able to race in the upcoming Kentucky Derby due to an illness. I fully support what is best for the horse. I know he will come back strong and healthy and I am excited to see him race again very soon.

In the meantime, Gronkowski has made it clear he’s in no rush to get back to the football field for New England Patriots OTAs. Instead, he told reporters recently that he’s going to be tuning up his dirt bike racing skills.
May the summer of Gronk last forever and a day.
