Super Bowl players and racehorses have more in common than you might think.
Super Bowl week is in full swing, and it coincides with the start of Triple Crown season in the world of horse racing. While the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos prepare to face off in San Francisco this Sunday, horse owners and trainers from coast to coast are looking for races to run with their best 3-year-old horses on the Derby trail.
Just as there are parallels between the NFL and horse racing, in general, so too are there similarities between the players who will compete in the big game on Sunday and some of the brightest stars in horse racing. Just for fun, we put together a list some of the players who will be in the Super Bowl, along with their horse racing equivalent.
