Mr. Calvin Bo-Rail retired from the saddle Tuesday after he notified his agent he's out. His abrupt retirement left 7 horses he was listed to ride, scrambling for a rider as well as workout commitments he abandoned this morning. Strange way for him to exit his life's work...hope he's okay? TJ

It does seem very unlike him - he always seemed like a very hard worker, not the type to abandon commitments.

Wish him a happy retirement. It does seem out of character for him to just quit. I reckon more will be revealed later; or not.

He has been slowing down the past few years. According to Equibase he only had 79 mounts this year with 7 winners.

Only 19 wins in the past 9 months. For someone who used to routinely win 100+ (or even 200+) races each year, it must have been extremely depressing.
His last three Stakes wins all came on Ivan Fallunovalot.

Has anything more been said about Mr. Borel? The fact that his retirement was 'effective immediately' would lead one to believe something was wrong.
