SPORTS SECTION: For Whom The Cow Bell Tolls, It Is I Mr. Zito

Congratulations to Calvin Borel, a true example of American Opportunity. From the humblest of beginnings to becoming one of the best to ride the noblest of God’s creations.

His Kentucky Derby ride was nothing less than jaw dropping with his daring weave in and out of beasts traveling at 38mph. He risked a final suicide run along Churchill’s foreboding, deadly homestretch rail. He is a true gentleman and honorable caretaker of God’s gift of dominion over animals.

I had “Pioneer of the Nile,” but he only got in the way of “Mine That Bird.”

I say Nick Zito gets him at the Belmont Stakes. CREDIT: The picture next to this commentary is Rafael Bejarano winning the Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park on “Papa Clem.” What’s the point? He was the last horse to come in for me, thank you.
