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 (G1). 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.
