Black eyed susan

  • Bob Baffert seemed pessimistic about Mamma Kimbos chances of winning the 88th Black-Eyed Susan Friday, mainly because the previously unbeaten filly had never raced more than 1 1/16 miles before coming to Pimlico Race Course.

  • Trainer Todd Pletcher will seek both redemption and progression when he saddles both Disposablepleasure and In Lingerie in the 88th renewal of the Black-Eyed Susan at Pimlico Race Course May 18.
  • (ESPN)
  • BALTIMORE - In Lingerie charged to victory in the $300,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, holding off Disposablepleasure for her third win in four career races.

  • A beautiful day at Pimlico will allow Black-Eyed Susan Day to go on with seemingly no problems and a fast track. All 13 races will take place between noon and 5:51 p.m., capped with the Pimlico Special, which has been run just one time since 2007.

  • It's officially Preakness eve and that means it's Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.
  • (Examiner)
  • After a three-year absence, the Pimlico Special returns Friday with a Grade 3 rating, a $300,000 purse and a stellar field of 10 handicap runners. Fifteen of the previous 41 winners earned Horse of the Year honors.
  • (WBAL Radio)
  • The Black-Eyed Susan got its start in 1973, created as a proprietary blend by alcohol giant Heublein. Preakness home Pimlico wanted to make it themselves, but Heublein wouldnt give them the recipe. So, Pimlico came up with a recipe of its own.
