Eat My Dust
Poor Mine That Bird. He has lost yet another jockey. I wonder if having a new rider in the Preakness negatively impacted his performance. Did Mike Smith wait a hair too long to make his move? Would Borel, who rode him in the Derby, have handled the race differently or better? Who knows. Now that poor horse has to adjust to yet another jockey, though Borel may be back if Rachel Alexandra isn't entered in the Belmont. In any event, I hope that Mine That Bird kicks all their asses and makes them EAT DUST in the Belmont, whoever is in the stirrups.
