Borel to ride in Dubai Meydan Masters

Calvin Borel has been selected to represent the United States in the Meydan Masters jockey competition at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai on Feb. 17-18.

The winning rider of three of the last four Kentucky Derbies -- aboard Super Saver, Mine That Bird and Street Sense -- the 45-year-old Borel will be riding in the United Arab Emirates for the first time in his career.

"I'm very excited. This is unbelievable, a very big honor," he said. "My agent, Jerry Hissam, and I work hard and I'm very fortunate to be here in this position." Borel, who is riding at Oaklawn Park this winter, is no stranger to international jockey competitions, as he won a race in Japan's World Super Jockeys series at Hanshin in 2009.

Borel will be competing against 11 of the world's best riders, most of them having been chosen for a memorable ride in 2010. Borel was chosen for his Kentucky Derby victory aboard Super Saver.
