Rick Bozich of the Louisville Courier-Journal reports that University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari may call “riders up" in the paddock at Churchill Downs before the Kentucky Derby.
Coach Cal would take some time away from recruiting to do this. Last weekend, he was in Pittsburgh watching Andrew and Aaron Harrison, who will enter college in 2013.
Calipari is awaiting word from Anthony Bennett of Canada and Amile Jefferson of Philadelphia.
NBC will cover the Kentucky Derby. NBC Sports Network starts out at 11:00 a.m. ET on May 5, then coverage switches to NBC at 4:00.
