Three-time Kentucky Derby-winning jockey Calvin Borel had his
sentence for a drunken-driving offense during the Ellis Park meet
suspended this week, pending his successful completion of a diversionary
program for alcohol abuse.
Borel was arrested for an unsafe lane
change near his Evansville, Ind., hotel on the night of Aug. 20 and
charged with the misdemeanor offense of driving while intoxicated. He
was ordered Tuesday by the Vanderburgh Superior Court in Evansville to
enroll in the diversionary program that may allow the charge to be
dismissed upon completion.
