AP reported that when Giacomo, the 50-1 long shot named after Sting’s 9-year-old son, won the Kentucky Derby May 7, Trudie had money down, turning $500 into $25.000 by betting on the horse.
Sting stated that “On the day of the race, we were backstage in New Hampshire and my wife called and said, `You’d better watch the television because our son is racing,'” Sting told Rolling Stone magazine in its latest issue. “Then she said, `I’m gonna put some money on it.'”
As for the winnings, Sting says it might already be gone. “It’s my wife’s money,” he says. “And she’s probably spent it already.”
