Calvin Got Too Excited

That's what happened in the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. Instead of hanging and making that one patented move around the turn or up the rail, Borel started a slow, some might say "soft" move to get into contention. Then, he pushed the button.

Who made the right move yesterday? Kent Desormeaux on Summer Bird who, because of his experience making a bad move on Real Quiet in 1998, knew when to make the right move.

Good stuff, Kent.
