Payton D'Oro Wins Black Eyed Susan Stakes

Pimlico Race Course

Payton D'Oro led wire to wire to win the Grade II Black Eyed Susan Stakes for 3 year old fillies by 1 1/4 lengths over Bon Jovi Girl and favorite Casanova Move. It was the fourth straight win and first in a graded race for the Larry Jones trainee.

After the race Jones said "This filly is very talented. We think she has a great future".

Fortunately for this field, one filly stayed back at the barn. Rachel Alexandra is entered to run in the Preakness on Saturday against the colts.
