Borel off Mine That Bird

Said trainer Chip Woolley, "Calvin is in a unique position right now to have a lot of options, but his failure to commit to my horse meant I had to go a different direction." Borel was said to have prior commitments with Warrior's Reward in the Dwyer and potentially the Jim Dandy on the same day as the West Virginia Derby. Read More

Not very smart on Calvin's part. MTB probably wins the W.V. Derby. No way Warrior's Reward beats Quality Road in the J.D. Also heard on HRTV that Charitable Man likely for the J.D. also. I don't care if the N/W barn is his meal ticket or not, where I went to school 1st place share of 750k is beter than no place share of 500k. Apparently he's lost more sense than teeth. I couldn't agree more. Not a very smart move on Calvin's part. Why do you give up the mount that probably wins the W.V. Derby and $750,000 to jump on a mount that even if Warrior's Reward wins makes $500,000 in the Jim Dandy. Because there's no way that Warrior's Reward beats Quality Road in the J.D. Also hearing that Charitable Man going to be in the J.D. Pretty bad when you've lost more sense than teeth.
Seems like a knucklehead move by Borel's agent to lose Mine That Bird. Yes, the Nafzger/Wilkes barn is Borel's meal ticket... and they gave him Street Sense and several others. But Warrior's Reward is no Derby winner, and you sort of have carte blanche understanding to drop other horses for the Derby winner... so you would think he could have gotten out of this committment.
Really interesting development...
