Songbird swept to another imperious victory with utter ease in the Grade 1 Cotillion Stakes at Parx this evening.
Just the six went to post for this one mile, 110 yard contest, with plenty of attention on the unbeaten Songbird, aiming for an eleventh victory here.
Songbird was quickly into her stride but on the inside, Carina Mia moved to the lead at the first turn from the superstar filly, with Disco Rose third and Cathryn Sophia to the outside.
Racing down the back, carina Mia continued to lead Songbird by about ¾ of a length, with Disco Rose right on their tails and Cathryn Sophia also close-up.
At the far turn, Mike Smith asked Songbird for more and she came up to join Carina Mia, with Cathryn Sophia in behind.
Into the straight and Songbird swept majestically into the lead and Carina Mia had no answer, as the outstanding three year old cantered to another awesome victory, passing the post perhaps an easy six lengths clear of Grade 1 winner Carina Mia.
The Jerry Hollendorfer trained daughter of Medaglia D’Oro could not have been more impressive and continues to push for America’s Horse Of The Year Honours, with a Breeders’ Cup bid now looming large.
