The Best Around? It’s Chrome

With so many top horses racing Saturday at Saratoga and Del Mar it was anybody’s guess who would steal the day. It’s been that kind of year, one where there are so many superstar horses competing across the country that we thought one of six or seven could wind up being Horse of the Year, wind up being the horse embellished in our memories more so than any other as we look back with fond recollections on the glorious year that 2016 has already been.

Would it be Songbird (Medaglia d’Oro)? For a handful of hours it looked like she might just be the one who owned Aug. 20, 2016. Still undefeated and unchallenged throughout her career, Songbird did what she always does, she dominated the competition in the GI Alabama at Saratoga. She is a filly for the ages and deserves to be in the conversation when it comes to the best 3-year-old fillies of all time.
