According to a report from TMZ, Ray Lewis is being sued by a horse.

The Fox Sports host owns a Bourbon line called Ray’s Reserve (described as “a Gold Medal Bourbon that’s Smooth & Sophisticated with Hints of Vanilla & Caramel”), and earlier this year, the brand apparently agreed to sponsor 2014 Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome. Ray’s Reserve made a deal to provide $25,000 in cash and $25,000 in bourbon in exchange for Chrome’s jockey to wear some Ray’s Reserve pants at the 2017 Pegasus World Cup Invitational.


He wore the pants, but Chrome (or at least his handler) claims that the money and bourbon were never handed over. Lewis’s reps told TMZ that Lewis doesn’t actually own Ray’s Reserve, which is not what the “Our Story” section on the RR website wold have you think, and that because he merely licensed his name to it, “There’s no justification for Ray to be named personally in the lawsuit.”
