With Preakness winner Rachel Alexandra not part of the Belmont Stakes betting field, Mine That Bird figures to get a lot of attention in Belmont Stakes odds at the sports book.
Belmont Stakes odds may favor Mine That Bird at the online sportsbook but the horse is still trying to go a mile and a half and run three races in just five weeks. Mine That Bird’s trainer Chip Woolley doesn’t think it is a big deal though. "Fortunately, my horse only runs about (the last) 3/8 of a mile, so it's not quite as hard on him as it is on other horses," Woolley said. Mine That Bird will get jockey Calvin Borel back for the Belmont. Borel rode Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness after riding Mine That Bird in the Derby. Borel will try and complete a jockey Triple Crown in Belmont Stakes odds even though a horse Triple Crown will not be on the line.
Mine That Bird is now getting more respect in Belmont Stakes odds at the sports book, and he is getting respect from other trainers. Kiaran McLaughlin, the trainer of Charitable Man in Belmont Stakes odds, has respect for the horse now. "But he's a runner. In the Derby, all I could think was Calvin Borel gave him a great ride and he loved the slop. But after running in the Preakness, I have a lot more respect. He is a gutsy little horse that tries hard. Mike (Smith) could've won the Preakness with a little cleaner trip."
Mine That Bird is going to get a lot of attention in Belmont Stakes odds at the online sportsbook but not everything is a positive for this horse. His sire Birdstone did win in 2004 Belmont Stakes betting but his dam is Mining My Own who was unraced. Belmont Stakes odds information shows that the dosage index number of Mine That Bird is also very high at 5.40. That number has to be a concern in Belmont Stakes odds even though the horse has seemed to want more distance in both the Kentucky Derby and in the Preakness.
Many horse betting players are going to take a shot with Mine That Bird in Belmont Stakes odds. There are some red flags though as the horse is racing for the third time in five weeks, has a high dosage number and the fact that favorites in Belmont Stakes odds recently have not done well.
