The highlight of this Saturday's racing action is the superstar filly Songbird, back in action in the G1 Delaware Handicap. A field of five other fillies and mares have lined up to challenge the champion daughter of Medaglia d'Oro, the most talented of which is G1 Ashland winner Weep No More.

Earlier on the Delaware Park card, the G3 Kent Stakes is highlighted by Frostmourne, last-out winner of the G2 Penn Mile. The Christophe Clement trainee will face off with Master Plan, the Todd Pletcher-trained third-place finisher in the UAE Derby.

Indiana Grand features both the Indiana Oaks and Indiana Derby on the Saturday card, the latter of which is highlighted by Blue Grass Stakes winner Irap. The Los Alamitos Derby is led by Bob Baffert trainee, last-out winner of the Easy Goer on the Belmont Stakes undercard. Finally, Sunday's G3 Vigil Stakes at Woodbine features Ontario-bred Pink Lloyd in the seven-furlong sprint.
