LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Rob Gronkowski has a stake in a big namesake.

The New England Patriots tight end has entered a partnership deal with Phoenix Thoroughbreds for Gronkowski, the star 3-year-old colt set to run in the Kentucky Derby on May 5. The four-legged Gronkowski is 3 for 3 this year.

"This horse is a winner and I love a winner," Gronkowski said Wednesday. "When I heard about the racehorse being named after me, I started watching and got really stoked when he started winning. He's won his last three and is now headed to the Derby. I'm all in: Welcome to the Gronk family, Gronkowski the Horse!"
