Conor McGregor, the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two championship belts, has said he may very well conquer the sports of boxing and wrestling, and even acting, in the future but, is Conor McGregor training to become a jockey? The UFC Champion was spotted at The Stronach Group owned Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, California, training with comedian John Lovitz last week.

NEW YORK — Lockdown won her stakes debut Sunday, beating Libby’s Tail by 2½ lengths in the $100,000 Busanda for 3-year-old fillies at Aqueduct. Libby’s Tail, the 3-5 favorite, set the pace with Lockdown right behind before taking charge and turning for home. Kendrick Carmouche rode for Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott as Lockdown got her second win in three starts. “She has such a long stride, you just have to time her run and she’ll take you home from there,” Carmouche said. The time was 1:44.75 for the one mile, 70 yards. Lockdown, the 2-1 second choice, paid $6.60, $2.50 and $2.10. Libby’s Tail returned $2.30 and $2.10 and No Sweat paid $3.20 to show.
