Louisville BLM activists, said Greg Harbut, who is one of the few African American horse owners, pressured him to boycott the Kentucky Derby. His late grandfather, Tom Harbut, owned and bred a horse that ran in the 1962 Kentucky Derby. But because he was African American, he was not allowed to attend the race or have his name listed on the program, he noted.
He refused to boycott because he believed it was more important to represent African-Americans by attending.
