Calvin Borel, appearing this morning on WNST-AM 1570 on the Comcast Morning Show with Drew Forrester said that the owners and connections have told him to expect to be in Baltimore next weekend for the Preakness.

Here’s a transcript of interview:

Drew: “Are we going to see you in Baltimore?”

Borel: “Yes, sir. That’s what the trainer said this morning. I like him. I promise you won’t see him at 50-to-1.

Drew: “So, your plan is to come to Baltimore and race in the Preakness?”

Borel: “Yes sir. I mean I’m not going to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ but I think that’s what the owner said this morning. You know the trainers and owners said they announce this morning that I think that’s what we’re going to do.”
