He ran his eyeballs out

This Belmont Stakes ended a dream for jockey Calvin Borel, aboard Mine That Bird: to win all three races that make up the Triple Crown. Borel won the Kentucky Derby riding Mine That Bird and switched over to the promising filly, Rachel Alexandra to win the Preakness. He went back to Mine That Bird, hoping to win the Belmont, but Mine That Bird's half brother, Summer Bird, overtook him.
