Twice the Appeal
Post Position: 3
What would the Run for the Roses be without Calvin Borel? Until 10 days before the race, the jockey extraordinaire was without a ride. But Twice the Appeal's owners -- Edward Brown, Victor Flores, and Henry Hernandez -- voted to let Borel take over for the Sunland Derby winner. That should inspire fear in the competition. Borel has won the Kentucky Derby in three of the past four years -- with Street Sense (2007), Mine That Bird (2009) and Super Saver (2010). He would become the first jockey to win three years in a row with a victory. "Bo-rail," as he's sometimes called for his love of the inside, also must be happy with his post position.
