Black Eye Friday

On this Friday, the eve of the second leg of the Triple Crown, we look to rainy Maryland to watch the fillies in a great race.

Pimlico Race 10 {Black Eye Susan~G2~1 1/8 mile~3 year old~fillies~Stakes}
A fantastic field of eleven will go to the gate in this annual affair.  The weather forecast calls for heavy rain.  The track will no doubt be sloppy.  Despite that, this is a great group of gals with closely comparable speed numbers.  Only four have gone this distance and five have traveled well over a wet track.  It should be an incredible race in which any one of these fillies could win.

#4 Stopchargingmaria (Castellano / Pletcher) could go off as the favorite with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression and three sensational workouts.  This daughter of Tale of the Cat also holds the highest speed number over a wet track.  She will probably be close to the pace ready to strike.
$2 WIN  / $3 SHOW.

#9 Fortune Pearl (McCarthy / Motion) could surprise as the only gal with a victory over this track.  She holds the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and two hearty workouts. A Mineshaft daughter, this gal has been in the money over a wet track from one start.
$2 SHOW.

#10 Vero Amore (Pennington / Reid) could also surprise with a couple of decent last out speed numbers and two strong peaking workouts.  Another daughter of Mineshaft, she should be forwardly placed ready to launch into the stretch.  This gal has raced over a wet track twice and has been in the money both times.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Euphrosyne (Santana / Asmussen) should show speed and could gain the victory by leading the charge.  She holds the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and four superb peaking workouts.  This daughter of Harlan's Holiday has a 100% in the money record from seven starts.

#3 Shanon Nicole (Smith / Maker) could be another surprise with a solid last out speed number two starts back and four superior workouts.  A daughter of Majestic Warrior, she could take up a confident tracking position and weave her way into the money.

10 CENT Superfecta
