Jockeys Calvin Borel and Javier Castellano traded punches after Castellano made an abrupt move on the racetrack

Jockey Calvin Borel leaned toward Javier Castellano, pointed, and just like that, the winner's circle at the Breeders' Cup morphed into a boxing ring.

Three-time Kentucky Derby winner Borel and Castellano tussled at Churchill Downs just moments after tangling during the $500,000 Breeders' Cup Marathon in an ugly, chaotic scene that left Castellano shaken and Borel pleading with security officials to let him go so he could "kill" his rival.

Two riders who usually save their jostling for the racetrack turned that hallowed ground -- a place typically reserved for big smiles and even bigger winner's checks -- into a fight club on Friday after the opening race of the Breeders' Cup.

The 43-year-old Borel waited for Castellano after the Marathon, angry over a mid-race move in which Castellano and mount Prince Will I Am unwittingly cut off horses ridden by Borel and Martin Garcia.

The move nearly sent Garcia tumbling to the ground and blunted Borel's momentum.
