Breeders Cup Fight Between Calvin Borel, Javier Castellano Kick Off Festivities at Churchill Downs (Video)


These two jockeys certainly didn’t leave it all on the track.

Jockeys Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano got into a scuffle following a race at the Breeders Cup on Friday afternoon in the winners circle.

Borel approached Castellano and the pair had to be separated after shoves and punches were exchanged. Borel, who was atop A.U. Miner, had to be restrained by security and officials well after the dust settled.

Castellano, riding Prince Will I Am, was later disqualified after an inquiry for cutting off jockey Martin Garcia, who was riding Romp. Garcia went airborne and was somehow able to hang on as the horse stumbled. Borel was on the outside of Garcia and was bumped out of contention following the contact between Castellano and Garcia.

The race was won by Eldaafer.
