Jockey Calvin Borel won his 5,000th career race Thursday afternoon.
The 46-year-old jockey got the landmark victory aboard Hezunusal in the sixth race at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs. The victory paid $11.20.
Borel, who has won three Kentucky Derbies (2007, 2009 and 2010), rode the chestnut gelding to victory in the six-furlong race — a $15,000 maiden claimer.
The St. Martin Parish, La., native had been without a win in his last 20 races and missed the first three weeks of the Oaklawn Spring Meet with a broken wrist. Borel last won a race Dec. 28 aboard Malibu High at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans.
