Songbird, the impressive winner of Saturday's Grade I $300,000 Del Mar Debutante came out of the race fine, as did stablemates Stays In Vegas (fifth) and Surfside Tiara (7th), Dan Ward, assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, said Sunday morning.

They'll all be departing soon for Santa Anita where Songbird will be prepared for the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies on October 30 at Keeneland in Kentucky, likely via a run in the Grade I Chandelier Stakes on September 26.

Stays In Vegas and Surfside Tiara, meanwhile, are likely to be pointed to races other than Songbird's.

“They might both really like turf,” Ward said.
