Black Eyed Susan Stakes
The Black-Eyed Susan Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race. It was one of Pimlico's oldest stakes races which was first run at Pimlico in 1919 as the Pimlico Oaks.
The name of the race was changed in 1952 to compliment the Preakness and to acknowledge the Maryland state flower. The event takes place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland every year.
The mile and one-eighth test for three-year-old fillies is run the Friday before the Preakness. The Black-Eyed Susan was given graded stakes race status in 1973. It has been a Grade II event since 1976.
Among the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes winners are classic fillies like Nellie Morse. It was the only filly ever to also take the Preakness; Gallorette; High Voltage; Caesar's Wish and Wide Country. Nine winners have also been named champion three-year-old fillies including Twilight Tear, Davona Dale, Serena's Song, and in 1999, Silverbulletday.
Along with the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs and the Acorn Stakes at Belmont Park, the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes is also the de facto distaff counterparts to the Triple Crown races. However, they have not been officially referred to as the ?Filly Triple Crown'.
The inaugural run was won by Milkmaid who went on to earn United States Champion 3-Yr-Old Filly honors. Milkmaid's owner J. K. L. Ross had a very good 1919 racing campaign and also won the first U.S. Triple Crown with the colt Sir Barton.
The Black-Eyed Susan has long been considered as the middle gem of the ?traditional' filly Triple Crown. It also includes the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs and the Coaching Club American Oaks at Belmont Park.
The three fillies: Wistful (1949), Real Delight (1952) and Davona Dale (1979) are the only to have ever accomplished this feat.
All three fillies are owned and bred by the illustrious Calumet Farm. Calumet Farm also has the record for having bred and owned the most Preakness (7) and Black-Eye Susan (6) winners.
More recently, the New York Racing Association or NYRA has created a second ?Triple Tiara' for fillies. Triple Tiara adds the Acorn Stakes and the Mother Goose Stakes to the Coaching Club American Oaks.
The only filly to win the Black Eyed Sussan Stakes, Kentucky Oaks, Acorn Stakes, Mother Goose Stakes, and Coaching Club American Oaks is Davona Dale whereas Nellie Morse is the only winner to also win the Preakness Stakes.
The Black-Eyed Susan has also witnessed a number of fillies become quality broodmares. After retiring, Black-Eyed Susan runners have gone on to produce Forward Pass (Princess Turia), Pleasant Colony (Sun Colony), Alysheba (Bel Sheba), Broad Brush (Hay Patcher), Lively One (Swinging Lizzie) and many.
