HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Oaklawn Park says Kentucky Derby winner Calvin Borel is returning to Hot Springs next month.

Borel's agent says the jockey will start racing at Oaklawn on Feb. 4. Borel began the year riding at Gulfstream Park in south Florida.

Borel has a successful history at the Hot Springs race track. Two years ago, he rode Super Saver to a win at the Arkansas Derby before the horse won the Kentucky Derby.

Borel also won the Kentucky Derby aboard Street Sense in 2007 and Mine that Bird in 2009.

Oaklawn's stakes season heats up in February with the $250,000 Southwest Stakes set for Feb. 20.
