Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Center in Georgetown, Ky. will host “Calvin Borel Day at Old Friends” on Monday and fans will have the opportunity to meet the three-time Kentucky Derby winning jockey who was recently elected to Racing’s Hall of Fame.
 
Borel will be available to sign autographs and take pictures with fans from 1-4 p.m. He also will visit with Ready’s Rocket, who was retired to Old Friends last year.
 
Ready’s Rocket won 11 races at Churchill Downs, which is more than any other horse since 1991, when detailed information was gathered by Equibase. Borel was aboard for 10 of those triumphs.
 
“He’s the kind of horse that made me,” Borel said. “He was consistent and horses that last that long are the ones that make you. They’re the ones that are going to win for you every couple of weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing him again.”
 
Overall, Ready’s Rocket won 20 of his 74 starts and earned $261,636.
 
For more information on “Calvin Borel Day at Old Friends,” or to RSVP, call Old Friends at (502) 863-1775 or visit www.oldfriendsequine.org.
