Today is Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course. It’s one of the highlights that precede the great Preakness, the second race of the Triple Crown. In collaboration with Susan G Komen for the Cure, Pimlico is sponsoring the second annual People’s Pink Party.

The People’s Pink Party invites people to enjoy the Lady Legends for the Cure II, the $30,000 all female Jockey Challenge, and the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes as well as other special events. In honor of cancer survivors, and to help further the awareness of breast cancer, Pimlico will donate 10% of its Turfside Terrace ticket sales to the Komen group.

Running in the Black-Eyed Susan are fillies from across the nation. Royal Delta is a strong filly who won by 12 lengths last fall at Belmont. Wyomia is a Grade 3 winner who finished in second place at the Suncoast Stakes behind Lilacs and Lace. Hot Summer will make her first go at 2 turns today. Coax Liberty will stretch to make the nine-furlong race. Buster’s Ready has the potential to be an up and coming winner. She’s giving 2 turns a try today for the first time in awhile. Love The Way You Are is a proven dirt track winner who is stepping up her class and distance.

Post time for the Black-Eyed Susan is 4:46 pm EDT.

The Black-Eyed Susan, along with the People’s Pink Party, are the highlights of today’s events at Pimlico. Turfside tickets are still available for today only at All turfside tickets for the Preakness itself have been sold out. Turfside tickets are $100 each. General admission tickets are just $25 each.
