Del Mar, CA (July 26, 2020) – Songofthedesert, made it two-in-a-row and three wins in her last four starts with her clear cut victory in the 7th race at Del Mar, a $51,000, five furlong allowance over the firm turf course.
The 5-year-old daughter of Desert Code came out of post eight with the lead, but took up the pressing position on the inside speed. Drawing even around the turn, jockey Flavien Prat asked her to go at the top of the stretch. Songofthedesert responded and threw down a final eighth in 11.46 to draw away and win by two and one-quarter lengths.
Bred in California by Oakcrest Stable, she is out of the stakes-placed Tale of the Cat mare, Unchanged Melody. She races for Johnny Taboada and she is trained by Jonathan Wong.
