Repole Stable’s Always Shopping, who broke her maiden in stakes company, heads a field of nine probable starters in the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (Grade 2) at Pimlico Race Track on May 17 in the test for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 miles.

Always Shopping, trained by Todd Pletcher, will try to make it three in a row after taking the Feb. 3 Busanda Stakes and April 6 Gazelle Stakes (Grade 2), both 1 1/8 miles at Aqueduct. 

Todd Pletcher said;

“This seems like a natural progression for her. She’s improved each spot, and two turns and 1 1/8 miles seems to suit her well. Everything has gone well for her since the Gazelle.”

The probables for the Black Eyed Susan are:

Sweet Diane, Jose Ortiz, Eddie Kenneally

Off Topic, John Velazquez, Todd Pletcher

Ulele, Joel Rosario, Brad Cox

Cookie Dough, Irad Ortiz Jr., Stanley Gold

Our Super Freak, Trevor McCarthy, Jamie Ness

Always Shopping, Manuel Franco, Todd Pletcher

Brill, Florent Geroux, Jerry Hollendorfer

Point of Honor, Javier Castellano, George Weaver

Las Setas, Jevian Toledo, Katharine Voss
