Earlier today, up at Saratoga, Songbird sat quietly off the shoulder of her main rival in Go Maggie Go running down the backstretch, then on the far, she drew up alongside, then passed her rival then turn for home to draw off to an easy as you please 7 lengths win in today’s GI Alabama Stakes for her 10th straight win!
Winning Time was a solid 2:03.Flat.
Next start for Songbird will probably be the $1,000,000 GI Cotillion at Parx on Sept 24th!
California Chrome put the lie to the idea that the 2016 GI Pacific Classic was to be the race of the year by going gate to wire up front then gliding away to a 6 length whipping of Beholder, then Dortmond then Hoppertunity!
Winning Time was a snappy 2:00.13.
California Chrome has now taken in over $13,000,000 in lifetime earnings and will take the easy van ride back to Los Al. He’ll probably use the GI Awesome Again next at the end of Sept at Santa Anita as a tune up for B/C Classic to which he now owns a berth in off this win!
