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."

Well, this is a disappointment. I was looking forward to her return.

I read somewhere that she would race in June.  Now I can't recall which race.

This is from the BH article I posted, no date is given:

"We were already taking things slow, but when she kicked the wall in her stall, it backed up her training a bit," Keith said. "But she'll be breezing soon—hopefully very soon."

Keith said once the Jerry Hollendorfer-trained filly begins going through timed workouts, she could return to racing in two to three months.

"Once they start breezing, it usually means a couple months to get ready," said Keith, who did not identify potential race targets for the seven-time grade 1 winner. "The most important thing is that she's 100%, runs well, and stays healthy."

I read the Blood Horse article too. At least it was not last year with the Kentucky Oaks around the corner..this year as a 4 year old Songbird has a little more time.
