Black-Eyed Susan

Preakness 147 weekend will open with the 98th Black-Eyed Susan Day on Friday, May 20 and will once again feature the George E. Mitchell Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (G2). Two years ago, 1/ST and the Maryland Jockey Club announced the renaming of this historic race to honor the late George E. Mitchell and his work within the Park Heights community.
