Songbird remains in fine tune.

The brilliant 3-year-old filly took her talents to just outside Philly on Saturday, and ran her record to 11-for-11 with a victory in the $1 million Cotillion at Parx.

Songbird was sent off as the 1-5 favorite in the stake.

Mike Smith was in the driver's seat and he vanquished her five foes with the usual ease.

Carina Mia went to the front as the gate opened. Songbird was comfortably placed second, shadowing the leader.

The fillies remained in the same position through an opening half in :47 3/5.

Songbird remained under a hand ride and simply strode away from Carina Mia.

As the announcer said, “Songbird, a picture of perfection.”

Carina Mia finished second and Cathryn Sophia, the second choice at 5-2, was third.
