Tuesday is Calvin Borel Day at Old Friends

GEORGETOWN, KY—JUNE 25, 2009—Calvin Borel is coming to Old Friends!

Michael Blowen, president and founder of Old Friends, the Thoroughbred Retirement facility, announced today that Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks-winning jockey Calvin Borel will make a special appearance at the farm on Tuesday June 30.

Borel will be on hand to celebrate his incredible Triple-crown series, meet-and-greet with local fans, and to show his support for Old Friends’s 50 retirees, including former mount Mark of Success.

The evening will begin when a party bus, courtesy of Lexington’s Bluegrass Tours, will ferry Borel and friends from Louisville to Old Friends’s Georgetown farm. The festivities begin at 4 pm and the public is invited to join the party and come out and meet Borel.

Admission is $20 and all proceeds will go to Old Friends, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.

A light supper catered by Wallace Station and beverages will be served. Borel will be signing autographs along with photos and posters of Derby winner Mine That Bird and Preakness star Rachel Alexandra.

The guest list is not yet confirmed but other invited guests include Triple-Crown winning jockey Jean Cruguet, Hall of Famer Chris McCarron, and trainers Lynn Whiting and Bennie “Chip” Woolley.
