LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Churchill Downs tweeted out who would be telling jockeys to mount their horses, and it is someone very familiar with Louisville.
Grammy-nominated rapper and Louisville native Jack Harlow will say "Riders up" before the 148th Kentucky Derby.
He was supposed to do it last year, however, Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas called it instead.
Harlow has recently been named in a lawsuit from a man who claims he was injured in the nightclub shooting. Abelson Barthelemy is suing for the money he lost on medical bills, losing work because of his injury and any money he might lose in the future because of the shooting.
