Harambe will never die.

One of the great cultural icons of 2016, Harambe has now inspired the name of a racehorse that will be running at Churchill Downs next week.

Owner Muzeyyen Karabulut named the two-year-old Kentucky bred horse after our favorite gorilla. He’ll be running in a maiden claiming race, meaning that he’s up for sale.

So for the small price of $15,000, Harambe can be yours, and you can help him run all the way to the Run for the Roses in May. Who is going to say no to this? If you’ve got a spare $15,000, you can become an internet hero.
