(Birdstone) was off slow and settled at the back of
the pack. He made his move wide and quickly began picking up positions.
He moved into third and was getting to the top 2 when the wire came. He
galloped out strongly, passing both Papa Clem and Old Fashioned. I know
that some will be disappointed that Summer Bird will probably not make
the Derby field, but personally I can't wait to see him on those wide
turns at Belmont
