During last year’s National Championship Game, Tua Tagovailoa led the Alabama Crimson Tide to a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Georgia Bulldogs.
The deciding play came on second-and-26 in overtime, with Tagovailoa hitting WR DeVonta Smith for the victory.
Now, that play is being immortalized in the world of horse racing. As you can see below, a horse at Sunday’s races at Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, Kentucky, is named “Tuaandtwentysix” to pay homage to that iconic play:

Those 8-1 odds are longer than Tagovailoa’s odds of winning the Heisman at this point, but if the horse can channel some of Tua’s magic, it’ll definitely cross the finish line first.
