America's Best Racing Ambassador Joey Mulinaro — former Barstool contributor, impressionist, and content creator — was on the ground this year at Churchill Downs to take part in all aspects of the 2022 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve.
In addition to watching the main event, Joey arrived in Louisville a little early so he could cheer on his own horse, Vinco, in an earlier race.
As part of ABR’s A Stake in Stardom initiative, Joey (along with other brand ambassadors) has been provided an ownership stake in an up-in-coming racehorse. Partnering with West Point Thoroughbreds, Joey was given a stake in Vinco — a rising star in the horse racing sport, hopeful to achieve big things.
In this video, watch as Joey gears up for race day, celebrates the beauty of Churchill Downs, all while embracing the role of owner and taking part in media interviews, meet-and-greets, and so much more.
Finally, witness as Joey watches the race with the entire West Point Thoroughbred team, rooting on Vinco despite missing out on placing in a top spot. Even in the face of a sub-par performance, Joey is thrilled to be a part of the Triple Crown atmosphere to experience a sport that is perfect for everyone.
