Rosario Rides Fiftyshadesofhay to Black-Eyed Susan Stakes’ Win

Jockey Joel Rosario, who will be aboard Preakness Stakes favorite Orb today, rode filly Fiftyshadesofhay to victory yesterday in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes.

The winner, trained by Bob Baffert, surged in the stretch yesterday to overtake Marathon Lady and win by a neck. Fiftyshadesofhay ran the 1 1/8 mile in one minute, 52.73 seconds. Toasting was third.

If Rosario guides Orb to victory today at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, the colt will become the 34th 3-year-old to win the Derby and Preakness, the first two legs of the Triple Crown. Eleven have gone on to capture the Belmont Stakes, the finale of the series, scheduled this year on June 8.

“I wasn’t sure turning for home because I told Rosario that she usually runs 1-2-3, but ride her the way you feel you should ride her,” Baffert said in a statement. “Rosario sort of did his own thing today, but it was the right thing.”

Fiftyshadesofhay’s victory gives Baffert a chance at a weekend Pimlico sweep of the Black-Eyed Susan and Preakness with a win today by Govenor Charlie, who leaves from the eighth post position in the nine-horse field with early odds of 16-1.

Fiftyshadesofhay paid $6.60 to win on a $2 bet, $3.80 to place and $3 to show. Marathon Lady returned $8.40 and $4.80 and Toasting paid $5.40.
