Always Shopping Heads 2019 Black Eyed Susan Stakes

May 13, 2019

Repole Stable’s Always Shopping, who broke her maiden in stakes company, heads a field of nine probable starters in the $250,000 2019 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 2019 Black Eyed Susan Stakes 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
