Girls Day Out

The Ultimate Girls Day Out

The Black-Eyed Susan was first run in 1919 as the Pimlico Oaks. The name was changed in 1952 to honour the beauty of the Maryland state flower and, over time, it became a day for women to relax and celebrate the magic of the fillies. Aside from the races, the day is filled with culture and activities that excite and engage crowds in new ways each year.
