Three-Time Kentucky Derby Winner Calvin Borel Busted For DWI In Indiana

The squeaky-voiced superhero hath fallen. Calvin Borel, the maybe-toothless jockey aboard 2007's Street Sense, 2009's Mine that Bird, and 2010's Super Saver, Kentucky Derby winners all, was arrested for DWI in Evansville, Indiana.

From the Chicago Tribune wire services:

The 44-year-old Louisville, Ky., resident was released on $100 bond Sunday morning from the Vanderburgh County Jail in Evansville after being arrested the night before.

His agent, Jerry Hissam of Louisville, says Borel had a blood-alcohol level slightly above Indiana's legal limit of 0.08 percent when he was arrested about 10 p.m. Saturday as he pulled into the parking lot of the motel where he was staying.


Borel is five-foot-five and 110 pounds, so he should know better than to have a thimble of chablis before getting behind the wheel.
