Keeneland Barn Notes
• RACING HALL OF FAME JOCKEY BOREL OUT 3-4 WEEKS
Racing Hall of Fame rider Calvin Borel, who was injured in a fall during Wednesday’s sixth race at Keeneland, is expected to be out three to four weeks, according to his agent, Jerry Hissam.
Borel was riding Sonic Dancer, who fractured his right front cannon bone shortly after the start of the 1 1/16-mile turf race. Paramedics were not immediately able to remove Borel from the course a little distance after the finish line and the stewards ruled the race a no contest to ensure the safety of the horses and riders.
Sonic Dancer was vanned off the track and later euthanized.
