Ladies First at Pimlico

Pimloco’s Friday May 15th race card features the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 mile. Bob Baffert has the top pick with Luminance (Tale of the Cat). This filly was 2nd in the Santa Anita Oaks behind Stellar Wind; the morning line favorite in the Kentucky Oaks two weeks ago at Churchill Downs,

Include Betty comes right back after an 8th place finish in the Kentucky Oaks, but got the win April 4th at Oaklawn in the $400,000 Fantasy Stakes. Keen Pauline has been showing up, but lacking the win but does get a top jockey for the race. Sweetgrass has won her last two races and gets a good rider. Ahh Chocolate is undefeated in two starts and Devine Aida won 4 in a row before last race finishing 4th.

This 9 horse field of The Black-Eyed Susan offers a great opportunity when wagering the Black-Eyed Susan/Preakness double as I find it hard to believe any horse in The Preakness can beat the 3 finishers in the Kentucky Derby; American Pharaoh, Dortmund and Firing Line.

Thoroughbred Analytics reports can provide additional valuable insight into the two fields of 3-year-olds.

A deep double (Black-Eyed Susan) with American Pharaoh, Dortmund, and Firing Line (Preakness) looks to me to be the closest thing to a sure, and potentially profitable bet for this weekend of racing.

Don’t overlook the Maryland icon, Ben’s Cat in the 9th and Stopchargingmaria in the 10th…. their best efforts win these two races.
