The horse was 44-1 in the Kentucky Derby but finished a solid sixth. Here is a look at the chances of Summer Bird in Belmont Stakes betting.
Belmont Stakes odds really don’t point to Summer Bird winning the Belmont. Belmont Stakes odds will be only the fifth race in Summer Bird’s career. His most impressive race was probably his third place finish in the Arkansas Derby behind Papa Clem since that was a Stakes race.
It is not all bad news for Summer Bird though in Belmont Stakes odds. His jockey, Kent Desormeaux is a Hall of Famer and knows how to win races. Desormeaux has never won in Belmont Stakes odds though, with his best finish being second in Belmont Stakes betting. Summer Bird’s trainer is Tim Ice who is not well known by most online sports betting gamblers. Ice originally had chosen Joe Talamo to ride Summer Bird in Belmont Stakes odds but changed to Desormeaux. “The more I talked with people, the more important it seemed to have someone who really knows this track,” Ice said. “I’m just glad Kent wanted to ride him in the Belmont.” Desormeaux rode the horse for the first time this week and was impressed. "I thought he handled the track fantastically, it was an energetic work," Desormeaux said. "I was thrilled to have him come off the track with more energy than he went out there with. He's fit and ready, and he's a healthy and happy horse." Summer Bird will also wear blinkers for the first time in Belmont Stakes odds.
Summer Bird is the son of Birdstone just as Mine That Bird is. Many online betting gamblers will remember Birdstone since he won in 2004 Belmont Stakes betting. Belmont Stakes odds information tells us that Summer Bird has a style similar to Mine That Bird’s in that he is a big closer. The problem in Belmont Stakes odds is that deep closers don’t do very well.
Belmont Stakes odds are going to favor Mine That Bird on Saturday followed by Charitable Man and a number of longshots. Summer Bird is one of those Belmont Stakes betting longshots that could hit the online sports betting board and pay well in Belmont Stakes odds.
