Watch out Usain Bolt, Usain Colt is running _ and with four legs, he is fast.

The 3-year-old thoroughbred named after the world's fastest man is being lined up for several races in Britain this summer, and his owners hope Usain Bolt will meet his equine namesake while he is in London for the Olympics.

The horse is owned by Ascot Racecourse. Prince Harry is believed to have joined the Birdcage Racing Club run by Ascot, whose 100 members pay an annual fee.

Bolt is aware of Usain Colt's existence.

When Prince Harry visited Jamaica this year, he met Bolt and showed him a picture. Bolt says "to have a race horse named after you by someone who owns it like Prince Harry for me is an honor."
