Arcadia, CA (May 16, 2020) – The second day back to racing at Santa Anita Park produced a sharp performance from Songofthedesert. The 5-year-old daughter of Desert Code made it look easy in the 2nd race, a $51,000 allowance going five and one-half furlongs over the fast main track.
Breaking from post two, Songofthedesert had plenty of speed to lay claim to the inside run while sitting off the pair dueling for the lead. She quickly moved to the front going into the far turn and raced away from the rest of the field. She was all alone through the stretch and crossed under the wire best by four and one-half lengths.
Bred in California by Oakcrest Stable, she was produced by the Tale of the Cat mare, Unchanged Melody. She races for Johnny Taboada and she is trained by Jonathan Wong.
