The champion American 3-year-old filly of 1995, Serena's Song won eight Grade I races at ages 2 through 4 and earned $3,286,388. Tough, sound and with plenty of attitude, she whipped males in the Jim Beam Stakes (USA-II) in the spring of 1995, earning a Beyer speed figure of 114. She failed to stay in the Kentucky Derby (USA-I) after setting the early pace but came back to hand the boys another beating in the Haskell Invitational Handicap (USA-I), becoming the first filly to win the race.
Serena's Song has been no less stellar as a broodmare. Her five sale yearlings fetched a collective US$11.2 million, and Serena's Song has been a fine producer of racehorses as well. Her runners include Coronation Stakes (ENG-I) winner Sophisticat (by Storm Cat), Grade II winners Grand Reward (by Storm Cat) and Harlington (by Unbridled), Grade III winner Schramsberg (by Storm Cat) and multiple listed winner Serena's Tune (by Mr. Prospector).
Both Serena's Tune and Sophisticat are stakes producers, and the former mare is the granddam of the highly regarded Honor Code, now back in action after being knocked off the Triple Crown trail by injury last year. Serena's Song's winning 4-year-old daughter Serena's Melody is still in training, and the mare has a 2014 filly by Medaglia d'Oro who may provide a fitting coda to her dam's record.
