News Flash: Borel works Derby winner

The Blood-Horse reports that Calvin Borel, who rode Mine That Bird to victory at 50-1 in the Kentucky Derby, then opted-off the horse and beat him with Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness, was paired with the Derby winner again on Memorial Day in a four-furlong workout at Churchill Downs.

Sounds like MTB's trainer, Bennie Woolley Jr., has said he's willing to wait and see if Borel can ride their horse in the Belmont Stakes, which he could do provided Rachel is not entered.

We might have a shot at the Triple Crown after all -- by a rider, not a single horse.
