People really need to lay off of Songbird’s connections. They made their decision to skip the derby and they’re adamant that they are not going to change their minds. It’s not like they’re beating up on the same horses, either. She has yet to face the likes of Cathryn Sophia and likely won’t until the Oaks, and that just might put them both to the test. Just because they’re pointing to the Oaks does not mean that she will never face boys and will be forever “held back.” That the SAME owner owned Havre de Grace and she never raced against boys!
