Jockeys Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano Fight at Breeder's Cup


In a bizarre post-race scene at the winner's circle at Kentucky's famed Churchill Downs, Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano brawled at the Breeders' Cup today.

According to the Associated Press: "Borel charged Castellano shortly after the $500,000 Breeders' Cup Marathon, angry over a dangerous mid-race move that endangered Borel and fellow rider Martin Garcia." Castellano's horse was disqualified as a result.

Says AP: The two jockeys were near the weigh-in station next to the winner's circle when things grew heated. The 43-year-old Borel pointed a finger at the 33-year-old Castellano. The 5-foot-1, 110-pound Castellano then took a swing at Borel, four inches taller than his rival. Security officials struggled to separate the two, holding an enraged Borel who urged them to let him go back at Castellano.
