Songbird on her way to winning the G1 Alabama Stakes

Summer may be winding down, but the racing action was still hot on both coasts over the past weekend.

The action kicked off at Saratoga, with 3-year-old fillies going to the post in the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes. A field of seven went to the post for the 10-furlong contest, but all eyes were on the undefeated champion Songbird. The daughter of Medaglia d'Oro did not disappoint as she rolled to a seven-length victory.

In California, Del Mar hosted its signature race of the meet on Saturday, with a field of nine going to post in the Grade 1 Pacific Classic. The race brought together Beholder, winner of the 2015 edition, and California Chrome, winner of this year's G1 Dubai World Cup. The race lived up to the hype as California Chrome won by five over a valiant Beholder.
