LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Churchill Downs says it is holding a contest to determine the name of a horse that is being donated to Louisville police.

The Churchill Downs Foundation is donating a horse to be used in the police department’s mounted patrol unit and will present the animal to officers on Oct. 30.

A statement from Churchill Downs says the public can submit names for the horse on the racetrack’s social media pages including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram through Oct. 23. Officials with the Churchill Downs Foundation and the Louisville Metro Police Foundation will then pick five names from the submissions and the public can vote for their favorite Oct. 24-27.

The horse’s name will be announced when it is presented to police on the opening day of the track’s fall meet.
