Even though he has won the Kentucky Derby three times in the last four years, jockey Calvin Borel, as of Friday, still did not have a confirmed mount for this year's race on May 7, according to his agent, Jerry Hissam.

"If I had one, I'd jump for joy," Hissam said.

Borel is scheduled to work Stay Thirsty for trainer Todd Pletcher on Sunday morning at Churchill Downs, but Pletcher on Friday said that did not mean Borel was going to ride Stay Thirsty in the Derby. Pletcher and Borel teamed to win last year's Derby with Super Saver.

Another prominent rider currently without Derby a mount is Ramon Dominguez, last year's Eclipse Award winner.

Among the other Derby starters still needing riders are Comma to the Top and Master of Hounds.
