Borel Gets The Bird
Dang it. Mine That Bird came in third in the Belmont Stakes, beaten by Summer Bird. Weird factoid: both MTB and Summer Bird were sired by Birdstone, who won the Belmont in 2004, upsetting Smarty Jones' triple crown bid. So, MTB wins the Derby, comes in second in the Preakness, and takes third today. Pretty durn good.
