    Default Calvin Borel signed to ride Texas Bling

    We have known Texas Bling's trainer for many years, at the suggestion of my duaghter the trust has secured Calvin Borel to ride in the Arkansas Derby with a letter of intent to be the rider in the Kentucky Derby

    Danele being herself is living the dream

    Good for him! We have been waiting news for him to pick a ride for the Derby. His mom in law is a good friend of mine and Calvin has been extremely kind to my daughter, so we were toying with the idea of going to the Derby this year, since he is talking about retiring...though I can't imagine him retired, and will believe it when we see it!

    I believe so, Calvin is very good at Churchill

    Texas Bling will be something for the books, small time breeder with a trainer that is not much more than a step away from the backyard .... a cross between National Velvet, Secretariat and Seabiscuit.... and it happened across the street from us.
