Songbird tested but prevails in CCA Oaks; Beholder, Nyquist work

Undefeated champion Songbird came up against a real challenge in Sunday's Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) when facing off against Carina Mia, but turned back her rival to score by 5 1/4 lengths.

The talented and popular filly capped off a stellar weekend that also saw 2014 Kentucky Derby winner and Horse of the Year California Chrome score in his return in Saturday's San Diego H. (G2).

The worktab was full of stars as well, with both Nyquist and Beholder taking to Del Mar's track on Sunday ahead of expected starts in next weekend's Haskell Invitational (G1) and Clement L. Hirsch Stakes (G1), respectively.

Also working on Sunday were Forever Unbridled and Tom's Ready at Saratoga, while Flintshire and Lady Eli took to Belmont's turf for trainer Chad Brown one day after Dacita captured the Diana Stakes (G1).

In other news on Sunday, Rachel's Valentina was retired and Destin remains on course for Saturday's Jim Dandy Stakes (G2).

Features

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.
