Farina subs for Borel on Brass Hat

With regular rider Calvin Borel sidelined through the end of the year with the injury he sustained Saturday, Tony Farina will get the mount on Brass Hat for the Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs on Friday.

Borel sustained fractures to his lower jaw in a spill at Delta Downs and is expected to be out of action for at least five or six weeks.
