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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
