I think it's classy to let Borel keep the mount. Said this on Mine That Bird's page... oops. But yeah, Borel fits and works with her well... no need to change.

Bye, bye birdie indeed!!! I can't blame him for taking the 20-length winner. How interesting does this become if Mine That Bird wins next Saturday?!
Borel looked over his shoulder... and saw the Mine That Bird was nowhere to be found. Rachel had just left him in the dust.
