- Black Eyed Susan
Among the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes winners are such classic fillies as Gallorette, High Voltage, Caesar's Wish, Wide Country, and Nellie Morse, who was the only filly ever to also take the Preakness. Ten winners have also been named champion three-year-old filly including Twilight Tear, Davona Dale, Serena's Song, Silverbulletday, and in 2011, Royal Delta.
The Black-Eyed Susan has also seen a number of fillies become quality broodmares. After retiring, Black-Eyed Susan runners have gone on to produce Forward Pass (Princess Turia), Pleasant Colony (Sun Colony), Alysheba (Bel Sheba), Broad Brush (Hay Patcher), Lively One (Swinging Lizzie) and Slew City Slew (Weber City Miss). Weekend Surprise, who finished third in 1983, is the dam of 1990 Preakness winner Summer Squall (sire of 1999 Preakness winner Charismatic) and 1992 Horse of the Year A.P. Indy. Vee Vee Star, third in 1999, is the dam of 2004 champion two-year-old Declan's Moon.
