Eclipse-winning jockey Mike Smith has agreed to ride Mine That Bird in the Preakness Stakes if Rachel Alexandra makes it into the starting gates. I'm sure Chantal Sutherland is somewhere sticking pins into her Mike Smith voodoo doll at this very moment.
The jockey who will be aboard the Oaks winner should she make the Preakness entry, Calvin Borel, will be appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday, May 12 (tomorrow). It's sure to be an interesting interview, so be sure not to miss it! I'll try to post the video after the interview airs.
