Borel fined, Castellano suspended following fight

LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Jockey Calvin Borel has been fined and fellow rider Javier Castellano has been fined and suspended for six days following a fight in the winner's circle on Friday at Churchill Downs.

The Kentucky Board of Stewards fined Borel $5,000 and Castellano $2,500 for their fight following the conclusion of the Breeders' Cup Marathon.

Castellano was also banned from riding Nov. 11-14 and Nov. 16-17 for causing interference aboard Prince Will I Am during the race that nearly sent fellow rider Martin Garcia tumbling and blunted Borel's momentum aboard A.U. Miner.

Borel approached Castellano shortly after the race, setting of a chaotic scene in which the two riders traded blows and Borel had to be restrained by several security officials. He later apologized.
