By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Mine That Bird has been made the 2-1 favorite for the Belmont Stakes, when Calvin Borel will attempt to become the first jockey to win all three Triple Crown races with different horses.

Borel rode Mine That Bird to victory in the Kentucky Derby, then won the Preakness Stakes aboard the filly Rachel Alexandra, and is back on Mine That Bird for the 1½-mile Belmont.

A field of 10 3-year-olds has been entered Wednesday, with Mine That Bird drawing the No. 7 post position. Charitable Man, who missed the Derby and the Preakness, was the second choice at 3-1. He drew the No. 6 post.

Also entered, from the rail out, are: Chocolate Candy, Dunkirk, Mr. Hot Stuff, Summer Bird, Luv Gov, Flying Private, Miner's Escape and Brave Victory.
