      Borel to ride top filly in Oaklawn $150K Honeybee

      HOT SPRINGS (AP) - Jockey Calvin Borel will make his next attempt at his 5,000th win aboard Rose to Gold in the $150,000 Honeybee at Oaklawn Park.

      Borel didn't have any winners over the weekend. Rose to Gold is a Kentucky Oaks and Fantasy Stakes prospect, and Borel will ride her on March 9 in Hot Springs.

      The filly placed in the Feb. 9 Martha Washington Stakes in her first start of the year.

      Trainer Sal Santoro said Wednesday that Borel would pick up the mount in favor of Florida-based jockeys that had ridden Rose to Gold in her last five starts.

      Santoro says he wanted a rider familiar with Oaklawn, where Borel has twice been leading rider.

      Borel has been stuck on 4,999 wins since breaking a wrist last month.
