And yes Miriam, what a delight to see a jockey as emotionally involved as he was. No grandstanding there.
Calvin Borel from St Martinville, La. just down the road. He's as Cajun as they come and he won it with a two year old! Probably cut his teeth at Evangeline Downs.

And Mr. Booty, which race did Borel win on a 2 year old? Just curious, he was really something!
Here ya go, from (there is also a really good article in there about Calvin Borel)

Street Sense became the first Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner to return in the spring and win on the first Saturday in May, snapping an 0-for-23 skid. He did so on the same track where he won the Juvenile by 10 lengths six months ago. He was also the first 2-year-old champion to win the Derby since Spectacular Bid in 1979, and the first colt to win with two or fewer prep races since Sunny's Halo in 1983.
