2013 Kentucky Oaks winner Princess of Sylmar owned the New York circuit over the winter, winning her third race by 5 1/4 lengths before taking both the Busanda and Busher Stakes. Her first defeat of the year came to fellow Kentucky Oaks (G1) entrant Close Hatches in the Gazelle Stakes (G2), a race that locked her in to the Oaks field.
Princess of Sylmar almost certainly clinched the 3-year-old filly championship when she won the Coaching Club American Oaks and the Alabama Stakes that summer. She confirmed her status as one of the best fillies in training when she soundly defeated two-time champion Royal Delta in the Beldame Invitational Stakes in September 2013.
Princess of Sylmar is out of a half-sister to millionaire Rhythm Band.
