Music Note joined Saeed bin Suroor in May 2008 and won her next three starts, including two Grade 1s; first success at the highest level came when landing the Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont Park in June 2008, beating Kentucky Oaks winner Proud Spell; followed up in the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks when she came with a fine run, from last to first, to beat her rivals by 11l; not suited by the steady early pace next time and just failed to catch old rival Proud Spell in the Grade 1 Alabama Stakes over 1m2f at Saratoga; returned to winning ways in the Grade 1 Gazelle Stakes over 1m1f at Belmont Park in September, again recording a wide-margin success; then ran a fine race in defeat when third to America's wonder mare Zenyatta in the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic over 1m1f at Santa Anita in October; the following season Music Note ran out an easy winner of the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes over 7f on dirt at Saratoga in August and landed the fifth Grade 1 of her career when landing the Beldame Stakes in October; on her final visit to the track, Music Note ran another fine race when finishing third once again in the 2009 Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic; retired to the paddocks at the end of the 2009 season
