Songbird, Eclipse Award winner as outstanding two-year-old female of 2015 and outstanding three-year-old of her sex in 2016, worked four furlongs under exercise rider Edgar Rodriguez in 48.80 Saturday morning at Santa Anita Park.
“Songbird went out five-eighths in 1:02.36 and three quarters in (one) 15 and one,” trainer Jerry Hollendorfer said of the daughter of Medaglia d’Oro, whose only loss came by a scant nose to Beholder in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita last Nov. 5.
“She’s coming along at a fairly decent pace. We’re going to look at the (Grade I) Beholder (Mile, June 3 at Santa Anita with a $ 400,000 purse) or the Ogden Phipps (Grade I, $ 750,000, 1 1/16 miles at Belmont Park June 10).”
