In the upcoming days, you’re going to hear so much speculation about the Sports Odds favorite, that they should really consider changing the horse’s name to “Mine That Title”.
Mine That Bird, the 2009 Kentucky Derby winner, has been listed by most major Sports-Books in the world as the clear favorite to win the 2009 Belmont Stakes.
If so, jockey Calvin Borel, who won the Derby aboard Mine That Bird and the Preakness aboard Rachel Alexandra, would become the first rider ever to win the Triple Crown in the history of horseracing.
Nevertheless, there are a few other horses looking to put in their bid to upset Mine That Bird. After all, if you recall, Mine That Bird went into the 2009 Kentucky Derby as a long shot, 50/1 odds, to win at Churchill Downs.
One of the thoroughbreds looking to defy the odds is currently listed with the third best Sports Odds to win the 2009 Belmont Stakes, Charitable Man at 3/1 Odds. The foal of a former Belmont Stakes winner, trainer Kiaran McLaughlin hopes his colt, Charitable Man, isn’t in a giving mood for the 2009 Belmont Stakes.
“His father won the Belmont, he’s 2-for-2 at Belmont, 3-for-3 on dirt,” McLaughlin said. “Do I need to keep going?”
Charitable Man is indeed a worthy contender to upset Mine That Bird. This week, both camps were back and forth as Borel guaranteed a Mine That Bird win at the 2009 Belmont Stakes.
“I’m not trying to sound cocky or overconfident,” McLaughlin said. “All I’m saying is that we have a horse whose style fits this race. With a little luck Mine That Bird would be going for a Triple Crown, so I respect that horse and all the others in the field. But I have a quality horse.”
After hearing what McLaughlin had said this week, Borel simply replied with, “We’ll see what happens.”
