Mamma Kimbo, winner of the G2-Fantasy Stakes at Oaklawn Park in her last start, leads a field of nine three-year-old fillies in Friday's G2-Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico (post time: 4:46pm Eastern; TV: NBCSN). The Bob Baffert trained Mamma Kimbo broke her maiden in late February at Santa Anita Park while posting a 105 Beyer Speed Figure before shipping to Oaklawn for the Fantasy. A daughter of Discreet Cat out of a Devil's Bag mare (Bag Lady Jane), Mamma Kimbo will be ridden by Mike Smith.
Plum, a daughter of Pure Prize, is the only Maryland-bred filly in the Black-Eyed Susan field. Trained by Rodney Jenkins, Plum won an optional claiming/N3X allowance race at Pimlico in her last start.
In Lingerie, the runaway winner of the G3-Bourbonette Oaks at Turfway in her last start, is the third choice on the morning line at 9/2. In Lingerie has two wins from three lifetimes starts but has never won a race on conventional dirt; both of her victories came over the Polytrack surface at Turfway.
