Captain Morgan has offered to match the winning horse’s earnings if it goes on to win the Triple Crown — the greatest accomplishment in Thoroughbred racing. In exchange, the champion’s owner must provide the brand with exclusive rights to the horse’s offspring, which will be named Captain’s Cola. If the owner agrees, the brand will match the horse’s earnings – more than $3 million.
