Gronkowski (the horse) experiences a 'minor setback'

Gronk I won’t be at Patriots’ workouts I’ve got dirt biking to work CRAWFORD | Report: Gronkowski's Derby status in question after training setback
Johnnie Parks | 24 April, 2018, 05:37

Phoenix Thoroughbreds' Kentucky Derby hopeful Gronkowski has incurred a slight infection and will not be able make the worldwide journey to America and participate as scheduled in the Run for the Roses.

Next, reported frictions between Belichick and Gronkowski came to light, with the head coach apparently questioning whether the pass-catcher is "all in" with the team and chastising him in front of teammates for performing poorly in last year's training camp.

Before we have any idea which horse will arrive in Baltimore as the Kentucky Derby champion, we know one who's likely to line up as a fresh contender to knock him off.

Gronkowski won't be released or traded due to Saturday's freaky press conference, but his aloofness toward his future likely won't sit well with not only the ever-serious Belichick but also the legions of Patriots fans who want to know whether their star player will return for 2018.

Named after the NFL All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, Gronkowski was expected to ship to Churchill Downs this weekend. The horse may not make it over the Atlantic to race on May 5.

The backlash from Rob Gronkowski's odd press conference on Saturday has certainly been intense by fans and the media, but after re-watching the press conference a few times, it seems like it's turned into more than what may have been intended. "When I heard about the racehorse being named after me, I started watching and got really stoked when he started winning".

Gronkowski the human probably has enough disposable income laying around that he'll be okay if his horse investment doesn't pay off. He's won his last three races and is now headed to the Derby. The quarterback apparently hasn't formally committed to playing in 2018, for any number of reasons, but pretty much no one is taking that threat seriously at this point.

In February, Curran said it was "starting to wear on (Gronkowski) mentally and physically, the atmosphere in Foxboro". "Hopefully it will be something I like".
