The upcoming Black Eyed Susan Day presents the Stakes that held its first run as the Pimlico Oaks in 1919. The debut race was won by the horse named Milkmaid, controlled by jockey, Earl Sande. The three-year old filly was trained by John E. Madden and owned by J.K.L. Ross. This two-time champion racehorse ran one and one-sixth miles on dirt at the Black Eyes Susan Day race. The racehorse won his second race in the following season at the Saratoga Race Course track, where Milkmaid set a track record during a mile and a sixteenth race.
In 1952, the name of Pimlico Oaks was changed to Black Eyed Susan Day Stakes with the aim of acknowledging Maryland State Flower and Preakness Stakes. In 1973, the Black Eyed Susan Day was awarded Grade 2 status, which remains to this day the Stakes races' grade. Currently the annual race is one of the three races in America to be counterparts of the popular Triple Crown races. The remaining two thoroughbred races include Acorn Stakes and Kentucky Oaks. Due to this, the Black Eyed Susan Day Stakes are regarded as the "Filly Triple Crown."
Fillies who have won the prestigious annual horse races have been honored with the title of champions by the Maryland Jockey Club. Some of them include Silverbulletday, Royal Delta, Davona Dale, Serena's Song, Twilight Tear, Fairy Chant, and Maid at Arms, High Voltage, But Why Not, Real Delight, Office Queen, What a Summer and Nellie Morse. Davona Dale is the only American filly to win the Coaching Club American Oaks, Mother Goose Stakes, Acorn Stakes, Kentucky Stakes and the Black Eyes Susan Day Stakes. Records that have been established at these annual horse races include the speed records set by Silverbulletday in 1999. The horse finished a mile and one-eighth racetrack in 1:47.83. The speed record on the one mile and one-sixth race track was by Lucky Lucky Lucky with a time of 1:41.00 in 1984. Most number of wins by a jockey has been scored by Chris McCarron and John Velazquez, each with four wins. The record for the most number of wins (four) scored by a trainer is by D. Wayne Lukas, in 1998, 2003, 2005 and 2012. The 2013 Black Eyes Susan Day Stakes was won by a filly named Fiftyshadesofhay ridden by jockey, Joel Rosario. Trained by Bob Baffert, Fiftyshadesofhay is owned by Mike Pegram and Karl Watson.
Before 2013, the grand prize for the winner of the race was $300,000. At the time of the race's launch, the prize was a mere $6100. Over the years, this amount has underwent several changes, with the lowest being awarded in 1937 i.e. $3875 due to lack of funds. The annual race provided a stable cash prize of $200,000 from 1993 to 2005, which increased to $250,000 in 2011, $300,000 in 2012 and most recently, $500,000 in 2013. Each year, the day after the winner of the Black Eyes Susan Day Stakes is announced a grand musical festivity is inaugurated that features some of the biggest bands and artists of the music industry. This time, the lineup of this event includes Switchfoot, Sundy Best, Eli Young Band and Go Go Gadjet.
