Gronkowski (The Horse) And LeBron J (Also The Horse) Now Share Stable

Superteams are all the rage these days, even in horse racing.

As you might recall, a horse named after New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski finished runner-up at the 2018 Belmont Stakes in June. Well, Phoenix Thoroughbreds, the England-based company that owns Gronk the horse, recently acquired a 2-year-old and named him LeBron J — short for LeBron James, of course.

That’s right: Gronk and LeBron now share the same stable. What a time to be alive.

Here’s a photo of LeBron J in action:

LeBron J will be eligible to compete in next year’s Triple Crown races, according to ESPN.

No word yet on whether LeBron (the soon-to-be Los Angeles Lakers forward) will channel Gronkowski and buy into his galloping namesake.
