Pimlico Race Course

In the world of thoroughbred racing, females—or fillies—are honored for their strength. Fillies such as Rachael Alexandra, Nellie Morse, Genuine Risk, Rags to Riches, and Zenyatta have gone down in the history books for their speed on track; as well as and their ability to give life to legendary offsprings. The Maryland Jockey Club believes that all women, not just equines, should be admired for their strength. On Black-Eyed Susan Day, we encourage Maryland women to be empowered in all areas of their lives: family, career, relationships, healthcare, and beyond. We are honored to partner with the City of Baltimore and the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® for this special celebration of women. For the fourth consecutive year, Pimlico Race Course and the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® will partner on Black-Eyed Susan Day to raise money which aids awareness and funds research. A percentage of the funds raised will go to the Komen Maryland Affiliate to use for community outreach programs and to fund life-saving breast cancer research.
