At +500 odds, Summer Bird might have great value to win the 2009 Breeders Cup.  Analysts at online sportsbook BetUS.com believe that Summer Bird's 2009 Breeder Cup odds of winning are better than any other entry.

"At odds of 5 to 1 Summer Bird is a phenomenal overlay in the racebook. There's just no other way to describe how good this three year old son of Birdstone has become other than to use the word "awesome". Since getting thumped in the Kentucky Derby, where he went seven wide over the worst part of the Churchill Downs' track that day, Summer Bird has been sensational.

"He won the Belmont Stakes after early. Then, he came right back and finished 2nd to Rachel Alexandra in the slop in the Grade I Haskell Invitational. In the Travers' Stakes he was amazing, dueling with Quality Road early, before prevailing by 3 ½ lengths. Finally, in his prep for the Classic, when Quality Road challenged him in the lane, he outdueled Quality Road again to record a 1 length victory in the Grade I Jockey Club Gold Cup.

"Summer Bird recorded the best speed rating of his career in the Jockey Gold Cup and figures to improve yet again in the Breeders' Cup Classic. He can lead, stalk, come from the clouds, whatever jockey Kent Desormeaux decides to do with him, he can do it. Forget about Summer Bird not liking the Pro-Ride surfaces. Good horses just run. That's what Summer Bird is going to do on Saturday. He's going to run to Classic glory."
