Buffett at the Horse Track in New Orleans

January 9th, 2012

Jimmy Buffett was in New Orleans this weekend where he attended the New Orleans Saints playoff game. And on Sunday he was at the track to watch two of his horses:

Legendary singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett, in town to attend the previous night’s playoff win by his beloved New Orleans Saints, was at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots on Sunday to see Who Dat Ambush, a 3-year-old colt owned by a partnership including several of Buffett’s friends, win the sixth race. Who Dat Ambush is named for the legendary onsides kick that the Saints recovered to start the second half of Super Bowl XLIV, a play the Saints coaches called “Ambush.”

Two races later, Buffett saw Fleurdefortyfour, which he is a part-owner of along with several Saints front-office executives as part of Last Mango Racing Stable, finish off the board. Fleurdefortyfour also has a Saints-themed name referencing Super Bowl XLIV.
