Bill Parcells Hopes Three Technique Qualifies For Kentucky Derby

Legendary NFL Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells won two Super Bowls as a head coach during his 19-year coaching career. He is hoping to add another major win to his resume. This at the 2020 Kentucky Derby with Three Technique.

Parcells’ three-year-old colt, trained by Jeremiah Englehart, ran his first race since November last week, finishing second in the Smarty Jones Stakes. He is entered in this week’s Rebel Stakes and Parcells is hoping he will earn enough points to book a spot in this year’s Run for the Roses. Can it be done?

“We both know what we’re trying to do. We just hope we can go forward,” Parcells said. “I don’t know exactly what to expect.”

Parcells purchased Three Technique for $180,000 at Fasig-Tipton’s Kentucky Select Yearling Sale. So far, he has shown signs of being a legitimate Kentucky Derby threat. This after winning two of the four races he participated in as a two-year-old. Also, finishing second in the other two races.

Does Bill Parcells Three Technique Have a Shot?

“He’s doing everything right leading into the race,” Englehart said. “I’m pretty happy with where he is.”

When asked if having a horse in the Derby would compare to the adrenaline rush of a Super Bowl, Parcells replied: “I think if I am lucky enough to have a horse in there. I would feel pretty similar to what I felt (in the Super Bowl). Yes, I’m pretty sure I would. I get very excited when my horses have a big race. That would be the ultimate.”

Even though Parcells didn’t like owners breathing down his neck as a coach, he is very involved as a horse owner. This comes as no surprise to former players.

“For me, there is no surprise why he was such a successful head coach,” Englehart said. “We talk just about every day. Sometimes I’ve got good news. Sometimes I’ve got bad news. He processes all of the information well and makes decisions from there. Usually, the decisions he makes are pretty spot on.”
