All eyes will be on Mine That Bird as he tries to capture the Belmont now that Rachel Alexandra is a no-go. He will be the favorite, but he may be overbet because of hype. The third leg of the 2009 Triple Crown looks like a very intriguing race as the betting odds for the 2009 Belmont Stakes have one overwhelming favorite in Derby winner Mine That Bird, and a very live second choice in lightly raced Charitable Man at 9-2 betting odds. Charitable Man is coming off a victory in the Peter Pan which was over the Belmont surface. He must stretch out another 3 furlongs this time but has the pedigree to do so. Dunkirk was heavily backed in the Kentucky Derby but encountered alot of traffic trouble in that race. He is still lightly raced but he is in good hands with Todd Pletcher and John Velasquez. Look for Summer Bird and Brave Victory to run better races that the betting public expect. An improving Flying Private, Luv Gov, Miner's Escape, Mr. Hot Stuff, and the Garret Gomez piloted Chocolate Candy complete the field.
