So in most years, the Kentucky Derby will likely have nothing to do with college sports whatsoever. But in 2013, national champion head coach Rick Pitino has a horse in the famed race — Goldencents. Of course, the world of Twitter is going to make jokes about Pitino and his horse — here are a few shots fired:
Prediction: GoldenCents falls on track, Pitino comes to its side, horse tells Rick, “Just win the race.” Awkwardness ensues.

Rick Pitino just realized that “the most exciting two minutes in sports” is referring to the Kentucky Derby, not sex with him.

Jealous of Rick Pitino, John Calipari tries to enter horse in Kentucky Derby. Thwarted when he finds out yearlings aren’t eligible.

Did Rick Pitino promise GOLDENCENTS he would get a tattoo if he won the Kentucky Derby? twitter.com/AndyHughes128/…
