Songbird (Medaglia d'Oro) and jockey Mike Smith win the Coaching Club American Oaks (Gr I) at Saratoga

Great racing was on tap from coast to coast over the weekend as Saratoga kicked off its 148th race meet. The Spa joined Del Mar, which opened the week before, as the two “must visit” destinations for racing fans.

At Saratoga, Dacita came out on top in a blanket finish to win the G1 Diana. On Sunday, the superb Songbird remained perfect in nine career starts with a powerful 5 1/4-length victory in the G1 Coaching Club American Oaks.

Del Mar also had plenty of great racing on tap. On Saturday, both California Chrome and Dortmund returned to the races, battling through the stretch and to the wire in the G2 San Diego Handicap.
