Songbird Wins Gr1 Chandelier Stakes
At Santa Anita in the US, Darley's multiple Gr1-winning shuttler Medaglia d'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) celebrated a Gr1 success when undefeated 2YO filly Songbird (Medaglia d'Oro-Ivanavinalot, by West Acre) scored by 4.5-lengths for trainer Jerry Hollendorfer in the US$300,000 Gr1 Chandelier Stakes, over fellow juvenile fillies Land Over Sea (Bellamy Road-Belle Watling, by Pulpit) & Right There (Eskendereya-Elrose, by Deputy Minister). A US$400,00 Keeneland September Yearling, Songbird now has 3 wins (also including this month's Gr1 Debutante Stakes) from 3 starts for US$402,000 earnings, with her two Gr1 victories being by an aggregate 10-lengths.
