Actor Tony Danza reveals his Kentucky Derby bet

05/01/2014 01:11 PM

It looks like Tony Danza will be making an appearance at this year’s Derby and will be betting on, you guessed it, his namesake, Danza. Danza stamped his ticket to the 140th Running of The Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands after winning the Arkansas Derby in grand fasion going off at a whopping 41-1.

Now Danza’s sire is a stallion called Street Boss. So the name suggested was Danza (alluding to the tv show, Who’s The Boss, and its star Tony Danza). And the rest is history. Now the Who’s The Boss star sent a tweet out Thursday that read:
Very excited. Going to KentuckyDerby to root for "Danza"! That's right!! Tune it to watch Saturday! See you soon EclipseTBP!

Now when Tony gets to the window on Saturday, he should get a good price on Danza. Currently the early line is 8-1 according to Churchill odds maker Mike Battaglia.
