Remember Kingsbury at the Preakness?

Will Kingsbury or Welker be spotted at the Preakness again today?

The 2016 edition of the Preakness Stakes will be held today. I know nothing about horse racing, but this race is a big deal because it’s the second jewel of the Triple Crown, held in between the Kentucky Derby and Belmont.

In 2014, Texas Tech head football coach Kliff Kingsbury was spotted gallivanting around the Preakness with the likes of Stephen Curry, Mike Tyson, Tom Brady, and Jesse Palmer. At the Kentucky Derby earlier that year, former Texas Tech wide receiver Wes Welker notably made it rain after winning a bet and also may have taken drugs that caused a four game suspension from the NFL the following season.

I wish I could come up with a funny joke about the masked rider and horse racing, but neigh, I’m drawing a blank. Anyway, Red Raiders seem to have a good time at these horse races. Here’s some pictures of Kingsbury with celebrities and a video of Welker passing out hundos:
