Borel finally able to ride winner No. 5,000
Jockey Calvin Borel has claimed career win No. 5,000 at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark. Borel picked up the win Thursday aboard Hezunusal in the sixth race. The Oaklawn racing season began in January with Borel at 4,999 wins, but the rider broke his wrist days before the meet opened. He returned in February, but couldn’t come up with a winner until Thursday. A three-time Kentucky Derby winner, Borel becomes the 26th North American jockey with 5,000 wins.
