2019 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes Preview

Stetson Racing’s Point of Honor was tabbed as the morning-line favorite with 5-2 odds. The filly won her first two races then took fourth in the Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2), failing to to amass enough points to enter the Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1).

“When we didn’t get in, the logical next step was to run in the Black-Eyed Susan,” Point of Honor trainer George Weaver said, according to Blood Horse. “It’s a prestigious race on the tour for 3-year-old fillies, and we’re happy to be a part of it.”

Four-time Black-Eyed Susan Stakes winner Todd Pletcher is the only trainer with two horses in the nine-filly field: Always Shopping (4-1) and Off Topic (8-1). After failing to take first in 2018, Always Shopping, owned by Repole Stable, is unbeaten in two starts this year.

“This seems like a natural progression for her,” Pletcher said, according to Paulick Report. “She’s improved each spot, and two turns and 1 1/8 miles seems to suit her well. Everything has gone well for her since the Gazelle.”

Paul P. Pompa Jr.-owned Off Topic, the daughter of 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense, took second in her first race of the year then finished third in the Gazelle, her first stakes attempt and her first 1 1/8-mile race.

“I was pleased with her effort, but she’s one that is still putting all her potential together,” Pletcher added. “She broke better in the Gazelle than she had and put herself in a tractable position. She still has not run to her full potential.”

Maryland-bred Las Setas should have the crowd on her side, but she’s considered a long shot, one of three horses at 15-1, the second-worst odds in the field. The Robert T. Manfuso-owned horse has won in each of her three starts, all in 2019.

“She’s a pretty easy-going filly as far as training,” trainer Katharine Voss said, per Paulick Report. “She’s nice to gallop. She doesn’t try to run off. She doesn’t do a lot of stupid stuff. We always thought she was really nice, but things normally work out that well. You’re just trying to keep them sound and everything.”

Voss added: “She ran really green first time out. I think her first two races helped her. She’s always shown an awful lot of talent. The other day when she worked in 48 flat, she just looked like she’s just kind of cruising along. She isn’t being asked. She picked it up on her own a little bit in the lane.”
