LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Jockeys Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano traded punches in the winner's circle of the Breeders' Cup after Castellano made an abrupt move on the racetrack.
Borel pointed his finger at Castellano, and the two went at each other, scuffling as others tried to separate them. An enraged Borel refused to relent, pushing to get back at Castellano as other tried to pull him away.
Eventually, Borel's wife and brother each grabbed an arm and walked him back to the jockeys' room, where he flung off his silks.
Borel was upset with how Castellano rode Prince Will I Am during Friday's $500,000 Marathon at Churchill Downs.
Castellano moved into the path of Romp and Martin Garcia, causing the horse to stumble. Borel and A.U. Miner were jostled as a result. Prince Will I Am later was disqualified in the race won by Eldaafer.
