On Saturday in the $750,000 Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup, Summer Bird will have a chance to become the first 3-year-old in 20 years to win the Belmont Stakes, Travers Stakes, and Jockey Club Gold Cup all in the same year. The 1 1/4 race headlines Super Saturday at Belmont Park and he will have to contend with Grade 1 Stephen Foster winner and runner up in the G1 Whitney and G1 Woodward, Macho Again, who will be flying late with Summer Bird. The other main threat is Quality Road, who won the Florida Derby back in March and was an early favorite for the Kentucky Derby before injury forced him to take some time off. He lost to Summer Bird by 5 lengths in the Travers and today might be again going a little beyond his ideal distance. However, the Travers was run over a sloppy track, which may have favored Summer Bird, so he has a chance if he can get away with a reasonable pace. Watch out for Tizway, he is better than you think. Asiatic Boy, Sette E Mezzo, and Dry Martini round out the field.
