Connect upsets Pennsylvania Derby, Songbird romps in Cotillion

Connect upset the top three from the Kentucky Derby (G1) when pulling off a half-length victory in Saturday's Pennsylvania Derby (G2) at Parx Racing, leaving the entire three-year-old male division in a state of disarray.

Teresa Genaro agreed about the Penn Derby while heaping praise upon Songbird's Cotillion victory.

Also at Parx Racing on Saturday, Noholdingback Bear scored in the Gallant Bob (G3).

Deeply Undervalued lived up to his name in the Commonwealth Derby at Laurel Park, which also hosted the Commonwealth Turf Cup (G2) and Commonwealth Oaks (G3) as part of its stakes-laden card.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien's pair of Brave Anna and Roly Poly ran down Lady Aurelia to finish one-two in the Cheveley Park (Eng-G1) at Newmarket on Saturday.

Texas Chrome tops Oklahoma Derby

Texas Chrome is the one to beat in the Oklahoma Derby (G3) on Sunday at Remington Park, which hosts a total of 10 stakes on the day including the Remington Park Oaks and David M. Vance.

Teresa Genaro took a look at the Mid-Atlantic's newest star -- Cathryn Sophia.


Dear Readers,
