Belmont Stakes odds will not include a shot for any horse at the Triple Crown this year, which only adds to the Belmont Stakes betting challenge of a wide open field.
One of the reason that there could be some new and unknown horses running against the Belmont Stakes odds is because some of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes horses will be sent home from Belmont Stakes betting action because there is no Triple Crown shot and also because the horses will be saved for big events later in the year such as The Travers and the Breeders’ Cup.
One of the big advantages for a new horse entering action against the Belmont Stakes odds is that it will likely have fresh legs and would not have been under the grueling training regiment required for action in all Triple Crown races. Summer Bird is just such a horse that is likely going to see action against the Belmont Stakes odds.
Summer Bird will definitely have fresh legs for action against the Belmont Stakes odds as he skipped the Preakness Stakes after finishing 6th in the Kentucky Derby. Prior to that Summer Bird built his resume for the Belmont Stakes odds by finishing a very close 3rd in the Arkansas Derby, losing by just a length and a quarter to Papa Clem.
Summer Bird has excellent pedigree for action against the Belmont Stakes odds as he is the son of 2004 Belmont winner Birdstone. Summer Bird arrived for training and preparation against the Belmont Stakes odds last Tuesday after training at Louisiana Downs.
Joe Talamo will get the Belmont mount on Summer Bird but another jockey, Hall of Famer Edgar Prado, will break the horse in for Talamo. Trainer Tim Ice said that Summer Bird has put on some weight since the Kentucky Derby and is hitting his prime at the perfect time for the Belmont Stakes.
