In a career spanning 25 years, Borel was known for his tireless work ethic and ability to slide off the rails to save the land.

Calvin started his professional cycling career at the Delta Downs. He has won in the U.S. Traveling Crown/Breeders’ Cup categories such as the Breeders’ Cup (2006), Kentucky Derby (2007, 2009, 2010) and Prekness Championship (2009).

On June 4, 2010, Borrell became the second jockey to win 1,000 professional races at Churchill Downs, joining Hall of Famer Pat Day. In a less proud moment, on August 20, 2011, Calvin Borrell was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Evansville, Indiana. On March 7, 2013, Borel rode the Hezunusual to his 5,000th victory at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, in race 6. He dedicated the victory to his agent of more than 20 years, the ailing Jerry Hisham. Borel is the 26th North American jockey to reach 5,000 victories. Borrell played himself in the 2014 feature film 50 to 1, which chronicled Bird’s 2009 Kentucky Derby winning horse mine. Borel’s older brother Cecil had a brief career as a thoroughbred jockey but was unable to maintain his weight and turned to training horses at the Delta Downs in Vinton, Louisiana.
