The Kentucky Derby took place this weekend and Churchill Downs have a very special visitor. Robert Griffin III decided to join in on the fun, though he may have been a bit under-dressed....
I know what you're thinking, that's a funny hat RG3 is wearing. Before heading to the race, however, RG3 took a detour to the Muhammad Ali Center, also located in Louisville.
Man.... I just visited the Muhammad Ali Center and seeing in depth what ALI did and who he was is so inspiring— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) May 3, 2013
Afterwards, it was on to the race. Many people may not follow horse racing, but just about everybody gets excited when it comes to the Kentucky Derby. Apparently, RG3 is no exception.
I WON!!!!!!!Ha ha Derby was fun!!!!— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) May 4, 2013
Gambling may be a big part of the Derby, but don't worry Redskins' fans, RG3 kept his nose clean.
Came to the Derby for fun & successfully did not have to make any life decisions haha #KeepYourMoney— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) May 4, 2013
Even at a race where RG3 is easily more recognizable than anyone competing in the actual event, he remained gracious as always and thanked his host.
A big Thank you to Junior Bridgeman for giving me a first class Kentucky Derby experience. Honored to have him as a friend— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) May 5, 2013
It is a rare weekend when RG3 can enjoy himself and no one mentions his knee. Now it is back to work; he has his own trophy to win.
