How to Watch the 2023 Black-Eyed Susan: Date, streaming, post time, odds and more

Watch as Larry Collmus, the voice of the Triple Crown, calls Mage's win during the thrilling 149th Kentucky Derby.

After Mage’s thrilling win in the 2023 Kentucky Derby, all eyes turn to Pimlico and the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. Before the Preakness on Saturday, horse racing action gets started with the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, a Grade 2, 1 1/8 mile race for three-year-old fillies. 2023 marks the 99th running of the high-profile event.

Coverage of this year’s Black-Eyed Susan can be streamed on Peacock, Friday beginning at 4:30pm ET. Since 1952, the race, originally known as the Pimlico Oaks, has borne the name of Maryland’s state flower, and the Black-Eyed Susan is also the signature cocktail of Preakness weekend.

The morning line favorite is Faiza (7/5), trained by Bob Baffert, who enters Friday’s race a perfect five-for-five in her career. After a two-year suspension, Baffert will also have an entrant in the Preakness (National Treasure), marking the first time he has had a Triple Crown race entrant in his own name since the 2021 Preakness.
