His colt, Mor Spirit, has a real shot at winning the Kentucky Derby.

Michael Lund Petersen – the founder of Pandora Jewelry who’s credited for devising its marketing strategy – is shifting his attention to the horse track and his young colt, Mor Spirit, who’s being primed to compete in the Kentucky Derby, the Courier-Journal writes. The article says that Peterson, a “rookie” horseman, has recently scaled back his commitments to Pandora, where he currently remains a senior adviser. "They don’t need my advice anymore,” he said. “They’re doing just fine. Now I have time to do this.”

Petersen, the article adds, has partnered with Hall of Fame horse trainer Bob Baffert, who’s preparing Mor Spirit for the race after winning the Triple Crown with American Pharoah last year. The Kentucky Derby takes place on Saturday, May 7.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century.

And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
