Shocker: Rick Pitino had “absolutely no clue” horse he co-owned was named “Party Dancer”

Last week, a horse Rick Pitino is part-owner of named “Party Dancer” came away with a victory in the fifth race at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. The final purse was $33,380, and a $2 win bet came out to $10.80.

After receiving obvious backlash about the horse’s hilarious and completely unsurprising name, Pitino came out today and played the dumb card. Again.

“It was unbeknownst to me,” Pitino told the Courier-Journal. “I have absolutely no clue about the name of this horse. (Co-owner Larry Spitcaufsky) doesn’t even know I’m a basketball coach. … It never dawned on me that Party Dancer is a striptease act.

You couldn’t connect the dots that strippers DANCING at a PARTY for recruits isn’t a striptease act? Shocker.

The self-pity continued, with the former Louisville head coach saying he can’t even savor the victory without people raining on his parade.

“The shame of it (is I) can’t even enjoy a win,” Pitino said. “The piling on is incredible.”

Jockey Club spokeswoman Shannon Luce confirmed the name was not submitted by Pitino himself back in 2017.

Reportedly owning “just” a 50 percent stake in Party Dancer, Pitino said he will name another horse when he can afford it again.

“When I’m a majority owner, I will name a horse,” he said. “When I left coaching, I can’t afford to be a majority owner.”

Pitino is also the sole owner of “Miss Loyalty” (another gem of a name for the scandal-filled former coach), a three-year-old filly that raced earlier this year.

    Pitino’s horse’s name should be Denial or Oblivious.

    Oh poor pitino. All those bad decisions he made are coming back on him. Poor, poor pitino. Let’s all feel sorry for him that he’s finally having consequences of his own actions, or lack thereof.

    He knew. Hell, he is trolling everyone just in the hopes of getting more press. It worked.

    Apparently Rick Pitino doesn’t know anything about anything ever.
