"It came down to the facts that he knows and loves this horse, that he knows how to get the most from her and he knows how to win,'' Jackson said in a statement Friday. "They were an amazing team at the Kentucky Oaks -- winning by over 20 lengths. We think this is a perfect match of rider and horse.''

Borel guided Rachel Alexandra to a 20 1/4-length victory in the Kentucky Oaks last Friday, then pulled a stunning upset aboard 50-1 longshot Mine That Bird in the Derby. Yet he didn't hesitate when asked by Jackson to switch mounts for next Saturday's race at Pimlico.

"She's a once-in-a-lifetime horse," Borel said.
