1.) Calvin Borel was awfully mad after the Marathon. It had a lot
to do with Javier Castellano making a wreckless move that could have
injured a horse or rider. It had more to do with Borel being on a
horse that was moving comfortably and seemed to be a few furlongs away
from giving him his first Breeders’ Cup win since he piloted Street
Sense to a Juvenile win in 2006.
2.) If I was an owner and wanted Calvin Borel on my horse before the
Breeders’ Cup Marathon, then I really want him on my horse afterwards.
I loved seeing that type of fire and tenacity.
3.) Good for Bobby Flay. He purchased More Than Real after her
debut win at Saratoga and it paid off handsomely. This was perfect
Garrett Gomez ride, Part I...
