An evenly matched field of nine three-year-old fillies will enter the starting gate Friday for the 2019 Black Eyed Susan at Pimlico Race Course. Point of Honor is the 5-2 favorite, and post time is 4:48 p.m. ET.
Before you lock in any 2019 Black Eyed Susan picks, you ABSOLUTELY need to see what Jody Demling has to say.
A fixture in the horse racing world who has been writing about, talking about and betting on races for years, Demling is on an impressive handicapping run. He hit the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Dixiana Elkhorn Stakes on April 20, winning $408.38 on a $38.40 investment. That came one week after nailing the exacta, trifecta and superfecta in the Arkansas Derby. And on April 6, he nailed the exacta and trifecta in the Santa Anita Derby, Blue Grass Stakes and Wood Memorial.
Those picks continued Demling's astonishing start to 2019, in which he also nailed the superfecta at the prestigious Pegasus World Cup -- a $678 payout on a $1 bet -- and the Robert B. Lewis Stakes.
Plus, he's hit nine of the last 11 Oaks-Derby doubles at Churchill Downs. That means he's held a ticket with the winners of the Kentucky Oaks and Derby all but twice in the last decade. And he's nailed nine of the last 14 winners of the Preakness, Saturday's Triple Crown race at Pimlico. Anyone who has followed him is WAY up.
Now, Demling has analyzed the entire 2019 Black Eyed Susan field and released where he believes every horse will finish.
We can tell you that Demling wants no part of Brill, one of the top favorites at 5-1. In fact, he says Brill doesn't even crack the top five. Brill is winless around two turns and favors running near the pace. There are other horses in the Black Eyed Susan who prefer to be on or close to the lead, and the projected fast early pace could compromise her chances.
Instead, Demling is high on a monumental long shot, saying she'll hit the board hard at the 2019 Black Eyed Susan. If you include her in your exotics, you could be looking at a COLOSSAL payday.
