UPDATED: 2019 Black-Eyed Susan Day stakes picks

Updated to reflect scratches.

Race 7 | Skipat Stakes | 6 furlongs

1. Chalon
2. Estilo Femenino
3. Maybe Wicked
4. Everlasting Secret

Comment: Chalon towers over this field on class as long as she’s ready in 2019 debut.

Race 8 | Grade III Adena Springs Miss Preakness | 6 furlongs 

1. Covfefe
2. Fighting Mad
3. Never Enough Time
4. Congrats Gal

Comment: Twitter heroine was primed at Keeneland and should be even better in second start of year.

Race 9 |Hilltop Stakes | 1 mile turf 

1. Dogtag
2. Nova Sol
3. Fashion Faux Pas
4. Makeme Dream

Comment: Top turf trainer’s numbers off layoffs say this one must be respected, and, if not the one, then go with the stablemate.

Race 10 | Grade III Pimlico Special Stakes | 1 1/4 miles 

1. Tenfold
2. You’re to Blame
3. Bobby G
4. Flamaway

Comment: Tenfold has won at a higher level. (Part of the charm of the race was being run at the quirky Preakness Stakes distance. Last year’s comment: Looking at this signature race in the history of thoroughbred racing makes you sick when you see what it’s become, but at least The Stronach Group hasn’t given up on it.)

Race 11 | Grade II Black-Eyed Susan Stakes | 1 1/8 miles 

1. Brill
2. Cookie Dough
3. Always Shopping
4. Off Topic

Comment: The one I want to bet most today. Hollendorfer picks his spots carefully, and Brill looks primed in third start of year.

Race 12 | Jim McKay Turf Sprint Stakes | 5 furlongs turf 

1. Tricks to Doo
2. Completed Pass
3. American Sailor
4. Oldies But Goodies

Comment: Bound for Nowhere had a tough loss in Grade 2 Shakertown in 2019 bow, can improve off that and is in a softer spot.

Race 13 | Grade III Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes | 1 1/8 miles 

1. Another Broad
2. My Miss Lilly
3. Mylady Curlin
4. Golden Award

Comment: Another Broad looks like she’s ready in a very competitive renewal.
