  • Getting started for the Oaks! Hope Valentina grows a lot and can give her a race.
  • As much as I love Valentina, can't get past the record. Songbird should be 2yr. old filly Eclipse winner.
  • Songbird To Target Kentucky Oaks Instead of Derby
    By Lenny Shulman America's Best Rading Dec.2 2015
    Undefeated Songbird, who will soon be crowned champion 2-year-old filly of 2015, will be pointed to next year's Longines Kentucky Oaks and will not race against males early in 2016, according to her owner Rick Porter.

  • I'm still hoping her owners change their minds about going to the Oaks instead of the Derby. I think she'd throttle the colts.

  • Songbird Fires Bullet In Santa Anita Work (includes VIDEO)
    by Ed Golden/Santa Anita The Paulick Report 01.08.2016
    Undefeated Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Songbird, who will be named champion two-year-old filly of 2015 when Eclipse Award winners are announced on Jan. 16, worked five furlongs in a bullet 58.20 Friday morning under regular rider Mike Smith after the 7:45 renovation break.
    It was the fastest of 52 drills at the distance, the average time of which was 1:00.81. Santa Anita clocker Dane Nelson had fractional times for Songbird of 34 flat and 46.20, with a six furlong gallop-out time of 1:11.40.

    Same! It's disappointing but understandable, I suppose.

  • She worked today. 7 Furlongs 1:26:60 Handily. Think she is going to start very soon.
  • Songbird Work 1.27.2016
    TVG Network Published on Jan 27, 2016
    Our Eclipse Champion 2yo Filly, Songbird, worked 7f in 1:26:60 at Santa Anita on 1/27/16, with Mike Smith in the irons. The G2 Las Virgenes remains the target for her 2016 debut.
  • She wasn't among those nominated for the Triple Crown, unfortunately. Such a shame her owners don't want to race her against the boys.
  • If she were mine, I'd rather run her against the girls and put the money in the bank.
  • I believe the connections said she'll probably face the boys later in the year. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in the Haskell.
  • She is second ONLY to Nyquist in the just released Experimental Free Handicap (of ALL eligible 2 YOs.).
    She carries 125, he is at 126 pounds

    Would want them to be a little more conservative than RA's handlers for 3 year old year, depending on how healthy and sound she stays.
  • Lucky Mike he gets rides on Songbird and Ziconic. No wonder he is smiling all the time.

  • She wins big on Saturday, and I will bet you that we hear of a change of ownership within a month.
  • Anyone know what time her race is? I'm having difficulty finding it =(
  • Be safe Songbird and Mike!
