Sports Analysis Line of the Day

From the WSJ's ruminations on Calvin Fever, in re overnight jockey sensation Calvin Borel:
What makes Mr. Borel's feat so impressive, of course, is that he's done it aboard two different horses. The first was Mine That Bird, whom Borel steered toward a rail-hugging 50-to-1 win at the Derby. On Saturday it was the majestic filly Rachel Alexandra, whom Mr. Borel took wire to wire for the win (barely nudging a charging Bird). Next up is the Belmont Stakes -- and, to challenge himself, Mr. Borel will ride either a Pomeranian, or a very small iguana.
