    Mike Smith was jockey in Belmont Stakes
    Claire Novak ‏@BH_CNovak ·tweets Sunday June 12 2016
    Trainer Donnie Von Hemel says Belmont 9th Suddenbreakingnews emerged from the race with multiple cuts on his hind pasterns
    "It looks like he's OK, but he had several hit marks on both hind pasterns... which is unusual for him," Von Hemel said
    "I think he was really struggling with the track and never got comfortable enough to do what we think he can do."
    Von Hemel said Suddenbreakingnews ships to Churchill Monday. Cuts will be treated with antibiotics, should heal up soon. Next race TBD.

    Mike should win the jockey endurance award for the weekend.
    Friday he won on Masochistic at Santa Anita
    Saturday he won on Effinex at Belmont
    Sunday he won on Yana at Santa Anita
    That's a lot of frequent flier miles in one weekend!

    Q&A With Hall of Fame Jockey Mike Smith
    By Ciara Bowen The Blood-Horse Feb. 20 2014
    How do you hope people will remember you from both riding and personal standpoints as you leave your mark on the sport?
    "I try to ride the best I know how to ride. I love horses, I truly do. I like people to know that and I hope it shows in my riding, let's put it that way. I have to be the best I can possibly be."

    Mike Smith keeps filly undefeated after nine starts

    By Tim Wilkin TimesUnion, Sunday, July 24, 2016
    Saratoga Springs
    The big question isn't whether Songbird will run in the Grade I, $600,000 Alabama at Saratoga Race Course. Rather, it's who will run against her?
    The best 3-year-old filly in the country — perhaps the best 3-year-old, period — put on a show at the Spa on Sunday. Songbird ran her record to nine wins in as many starts as she romped to yet another lopsided victory. This time it came in the $500,000, Grade I Coaching Club American Oaks in front of 36,126.
    Songbird shrugged off a challenge from Carina Mia and then rolled down the fabled Spa stretch to win the 11/8-mile race by an expanding 51/4 lengths. She has won all nine of her starts by a combined 473/4 lengths.

    Songbird Soars into Alabama
    By Will Robbins The Blood-Horse August 17, 2016
    Six challengers will attempt to dethrone undefeated champion Songbird in the $600,000 Alabama Stakes (gr. I) Aug. 20 at Saratoga Race Course.
    Fox Hill Farm's untouchable filly has displayed remarkable versatility in nine career starts, winning by a combined 47 3/4 lengths at distances ranging from six furlongs to 1 1/8 miles. The 1 1/4-mile Alabama marks the farthest she's ever run.
    From article:
    Songbird will break from the 6 hole under regular rider Mike Smith. She breezed a half-mile Aug. 15 in her final prep work for her second start at Saratoga, and was clocked in splits of :24.22 and :47.49, galloping out in 1:01.19.
