A Plan for Songbird as Year-End Honors Loom
Rick Porter has a wish list.

Christmas has come and gone, but what the owner wants—an ambitious 4-year-old campaign from champion 3-year-old filly elect Songbird—may be doled out gradually this year, starting when his other-worldly runner returns to Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer at the end of this month from her winter's rest at WinStar Farm.

To hope Songbird comes back in 2017 anywhere near the level of her sophomore campaign for Porter's Fox Hill Farm, when she blitzed through seven straight victories for an 11-race win streak capped by a gallant nose loss in a knock-down, drag-out brawl with champion Beholder, is high expectation alone. But Porter is a sporting man and a planning man, and to that end he has mapped out a "perfect world" scenario for Songbird that will have fans of the Medaglia d'Oro filly drooling in anticipation with hopes that all goes well.

It looks like she has put on some weight...and it doesn't appear to be fat. :P :D
A mature four-year-old Songbird could have any other older distaffer scrambling to find races where she ISN'T entered. ;)

you both commented my exact thoughts. Looks like she enjoyed the snow in Kentucky!

Jeremy Balan‏ @BH_JBalan
Songbird's training has been delayed because she had a slight injury after kicking her stall, according to Fox Hill's Victoria Keith.

But Keith said Songbird should be breezing "very soon."
