Two-time Eclipse champion Songbird will be bred to fellow champion and world's richest racehorse, Arrogate in 2018, according to a report in the Thoroughbred Daily News.

Mandy Pope, who recently purchased Songbird at the Fasig-Tipton November sale, told the TDN, “We went over this for a good three days with Wayne Sweezey and other advisors and looked at a lot of stallions, possible matings and a lot of options.”

“Arrogate is a horse with a great pedigree and was a brilliant race horse. On pedigree, it worked. When you look at him physically, it worked. This will be a first-time broodmare going to a first-time stallion, so that will be interesting.”
