The four-time All-Pro was unable to contain his excitement at seeing the horse known as Gronkowski recover from a disastrous start:
Gronkowski was running his first Triple Crown race after being forced to sit out the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes with an illness.
Rob bought a minority stake in the horse in April. Gronkowski the horse was riding a four-race win streak coming into the Belmont Stakes.
Despite being unable to upset Justify, who captured the Triple Crown with a win at Belmont Park, Gronkowski showed the same fight, talent and determination as his name sake in battling back from a rough start.
