Calvin Borel Autograph signing Saturday at Belmont Park

ELMONT, N.Y. – Jockey Calvin Borel, regular rider of Preakness and Mother Goose winner Rachel Alexandra, will autograph photos at Belmont Park on Saturday, July 4 from 2-2:45 p.m.

Borel will sign 8x10 glossy, color copies of Rachel Alexandra from the June 27 Grade 1 Mother Goose Stakes, a race in which the Steve Asmussen-trained filly shattered two stakes records – margin of victory and final time. The daughter of Medaglia d’Oro defeated her two rivals by a 19¼-length margin, considerably more than the 13½-length victory achieved by the great Ruffian in 1975, and completed the race in 1:46.33, besting Lakeway’s previous record of 1:46.58 set in 1994.

Borel, in town Saturday to ride A. Stevens Miles Jr.’s Warrior’s Reward in the Grade 2 Dwyer Stakes, narrowly missed a chance to be the first jockey in history to win all three Triple Crown races aboard two different horses. After a major upset in the Kentucky Derby with Mine That Bird, Borel took off the gelding to ride Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness, making history when she became the first filly in 85 years to win that race. Back on Mine That Bird in the Belmont Stakes, Borel finished third behind Summer Bird and Dunkirk.

The autograph-signing will take place outside of The NYRA Store on the second floor of the Belmont Clubhouse. Autographed photos are $10 each, with all proceeds going to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF), a 501(c)(3) public charity that provides financial assistance to former jockeys who have suffered catastrophic on-track injuries.
