Songbird preps for return, possibly in Beholder Mile


ARCADIA, Calif. – Songbird, a two-time Eclipse Award winner, took her first serious steps toward returning to action with an easy three-furlong drill in 35.80 seconds early Sunday morning at Santa Anita. Exercise rider Edgar Rodriguez was aboard for the drill, in which Songbird went by herself, breaking off at the three-furlong pole. Santa Anita’s clockers had her going out a half-mile in 48.20 seconds.
