The Bird Brothers Do It!
Only in the wrong order! Summer Bird finished first and Mine That Bird was third in today's Belmont. And Mr Hot Stuff was 8th (out of 10. No problem... he comes from a slow maturing line, so next year he'll beat ALL these guys!) Of the first 4 finishers... Dunkirk was 2nd and Charitable Man was 4th... ONLY Mine That Bird had run in all 3 of the Triple Crown races. His brother and Dunkirk ran in the Derby and today, but Charitable Man didn't try any of the others. If I had put $10 on each of my 3 picks "across the board," I'd be sitting pretty right now. Oh well.
