Interstatedaydream beat favorite Adare Manor by 1 1/4 lengths Friday to win the 98th running of the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
The annual race for 3-year-old fillies takes place the day before the Preakness Stakes, the second jewel of the Triple Crown.
Interstatedaydream went off at 6-1, tied for third-shortest odds, and ran second to Beguine (11-1) for most of the race. She passed Beguine on the outside down the home stretch.
“I’m just very proud of her,” trainer Brad Cox said. “She stepped up and ran a huge race. I was very shocked to see she was the price she was going into the gate. She wasn’t getting a lot of respect, and I really thought she fit well with this group.”
Florent Geroux was the winning jockey.
“I’d say top of the lane, I could tell I put away Adare Manor,” Geroux said. “My filly took a nice breather twice during the race, so I thought there was plenty of oxygen in her lungs.”
Adare Manor, the 2-1 favorite at post time, took second. Radio Days placed third and Divine Huntress took fourth as Beguine faded to 12th in the 13-horse field.
