Mike Smith Opts Out Of Belmont–Who Will Ride Mine That Bird?

This poor horse who only won the Derby and got parked out of a victory in the Preakness can’t find a stable jockey. My suggestion: Edgar Prado for once and the future, There is no way I would let Borel back on this horse after he deserted him in the Preakness. Remember his sire was Birdstone, a Belmont winner. The filly will duck the Bird and not race in the Belmont.

    It won’t matter who rides this great horse, he has so much heart he could win the race alone! I got to see his Dad in Kentucky “Birdstone” and you are right Belmont will be his son’s stomping ground! Don’t worry about Mine That Bird ; a true champion can adjust to any situation in racing.

      Agreed, but I am curious to see who gets the mount. Bruce
