Songbird was once again much too good for her rivals as she sauntered to another brilliant and uncontested victory in the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes at Saratoga this evening.

A field of seven 3 year old fillies went to post for this 10 furlong contest on the dirt, with all eyes fixed on the outstanding Songbird who was bidding to make it a perfect 10 from 10 in her career.

There was an even break but Songbird was soon into her stride and led at the first bend from Go Maggie Go, with Dark Nile third.

Racing down the back stretch, Go Maggie Go continued to match strides with Songbird, this pair three lengths ahead of Family Tree and then came Flora Dora.

As the pace increased, it was Songbird who set it and all of a sudden the superstar was turning for home four lengths clear and moving further away.

Songbird and Mike Smith made their way home to another procession, slamming Going For Broke and Family Tree with another utterly dominant display, with the Saratoga crowd roaring their approval.
