A horse named Party Dancer won a race in California on Thursday. Rick Pitino, whose legacy at Louisville was blemished by a scandal that involved exotic dancers and escorts three years ago, owns the stallion.
Pitino was in the winner’s circle with the horse at Del Mar Racetrack after the 3-year-old’s second victory of the year, according to horseracingnation.com.
