So the other Birdstone son won the Belmont.   My favorite Bird got impatient down the backstretch and was fighting some, so Calvin gave him rein probably two furlongs before he should've (but if you fight them back, they can be more interested in fighting than running) and moved too soon.

Tell you what, if Birdstone's stud fee doesn't go up...I'll be surprised.
