(WPRI) — Always branching out beyond football, Rob Gronkowski is now part owner of Gronk, the Kentucky Derby-bound racehorse.

The Patriots tight end made the announcement Wednesday on his blog.

“There’s gonna be at least one Gronk at the Kentucky Derby next month — and probably a whole lot more now that the human Gronk has a stake in his namesake racehorse,” the blog post said.

According to the post, Gronkowski partnered with Phoenix Thoroughbreds, Ltd. to get a “substantial stake in the 3-year-old colt Gronkowski.”

“This horse is a winner and I love a winner,” Gronk (the person) said. “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 races and is now headed to the Derby. I’m all in: Welcome to the Gronk Family, Gronkowski the Horse!”

The 144th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place at Churchill Downs in Louisville on May 5.
