McGregor announces he will be kicking off a career as a horse racing jockey, and competing for a prize of $12 million at the Pegasus World Cup. Lovitz will be his trainer. McGregor:
Alexander wept when he had no more worlds to conquer, That’s exactly how I feel. Today, I would like to announce to the world that I will become the pound-for-pound number one jockey on the planet with the help of my new trainer.
