When jockeys fight, we here at LBS laugh. We laugh because it never happens. We laugh because, frankly, it’s hilarious. With all due respect — and I’m saying with all due respect — seeing two jockeys go at it kind of gives us of what a disagreement between two of Santa’s little helpers might look like. After all, it is getting close to Christmas.
At the Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs on Friday, Calvin Borel was apparently angry at fellow jockey Javier Castellano for cutting into his path during a race. Castellano was disqualified for the act, but Borel didn’t seem satisfied with the penalty. The two decided to handle the situation like men on pit road after the race. That’s what they call it, right? Here’s the Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano Breeders’ Cup fight video:
In case you were wondering, Borel checks in at 5’5″ and Castellano stands 5’1″. Both jockeys weigh a whopping 110 pounds. Enjoy it while you can, folks. Play it over and over as many times as you need to in order to get your fix, because you could never see something like it again.
