Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza will appear on next season of Dancing With the Stars.

The announcement was made on SportsNation on Tuesday, as ABC continues to trickle out the news on the network’s own programs.

The pros set to team up with the stars have yet to be announced, but Espinoza’s partner will have her work cut out for her: As Espinoza admitted on SportsNation, he can’t dance and has no rhythm. Should go well.

The full roster of stars is expected to be announced on the Sept. 2 episode of Good Morning America, where ABC announced their very first star for season 21 — Bindi Irwin.

DWTS is set to premiere Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
