Pimlico Friday

On the eve before the Preakness 138, we take a look at the race for the girls, The Black Eyed Susan.

Pimlico Race 10 {Black Eyed Susan~G2~1 1/8 mile~3 year old~fillies~Stakes}
A wonderful field of nine will go to the gate in this annual race.  There is a massive amount of speed in here.  If left uncontrolled, it could result in some real surprises.  Only two have gone this distance and only two have raced in a grade one last out.  It should be a barn burner of a race.

#7 Emollient (Smith / Mott) looks to have the edge if she can run a controlled pressing attack.  She holds the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three solid peaking workouts.  She has gone this distance and is coming off a grade one at Keeneland.
$2 SHOW.

#3 Fiftyshadesofhay (Rosario / Baffert) will challenge with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three strong workouts.  She should be forwardly placed ready to pounce. This gal is the other that is coming out of a grade one.
$2 SHOW.

#6 Maracuya (J. Velazquez / Nicks) could surprise with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three stout workouts.  She will show speed in her third career start after a brief freshening.  This gal has notched two wins in a row.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#1 Manuka Honey (Prado / Terranova) should contend with a couple of duplicate, decent last out speed numbers, a four race progression, and three superb, peaking workouts.  Expect her to be forwardly placed ready to move.

#5 Walkwithapurpose (Lezcano / Correas) should also be in the mix having already gone this distance last out.  She holds a couple of decent last out speed numbers and has put in three dynamic peaking workouts.  She is 100% in the money in seven career starts.  This gal should be running with purpose near the front end.

10 CENT Superfecta

#7 Emollient / #3 Fiftyshadesofhay / #6 Maracuya / #1 Manuka Honey, #5 Walkwithapurpose.
