A Kentucky stable has named a horse after Jimmer Fredette. I almost went through the “former BYU star / Sacramento draft pick” thing, but Jimmer needs no introduction. Jimmer (the horse) will spend the summer in Saratoga.
Pat Hammel, wife of Glens Falls basketball coach Tony Hammel, works on the barn staff for Bill Mott, who, along with Pletcher, is one of WinStar Farm’s top trainers. Pat Hammel suggested naming a colt after Fredette to WinStar president/CEO and racing manager Elliott Walden.
I will make it my mission to see every time that Jimmer races this summer. For years I’ve practiced the art of throwing away money on horses based on funny names at Saratoga Race Track. This summer will be no different. Praise Jimmer!
