Crowds Turn Out For Black Eyed Susan Day Despite Rain

Updated: Saturday, May 17 2014, 06:41 PM EDT

A big crowd turned out at Pimlico Friday afternoon for the annual Black Eyed Susan Day, despite a rainy start. The rain, which began overnight, forced track officials to move six of the 13 races from the turf to the track.

The Black-Eyed Susan Day is one of Pimlico's oldest stake races and was first run at Pimlico in 1919. The mile and one-eighth test, for three-year-old fillies is traditionally run the Friday before the Preakness.

Preakness will be run on Saturday. It is the second race in the Triple Crown series.
