Acting Happy wins the 2010 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico

The feature race on Friday at Pimlico is the $175,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes (G2) for 3-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 miles, before 27,609 fans enjoying sunny skies and temperatures in the high 80's. Tidal Pool was sent off as the 2-1 favorite off a third place finish in the Kentucky Oaks, over 5-2 second choice Seeking the Title, coming off a third place finish in the Fair Grounds Oaks, and 4-1 third choice Harissa, winner of the Sunland Park Oaks.

Khancord Kid went to the lead first time past the stands and she set early fractions of 23.78, 47.54, and 1:11.43 while being stalked by Acting Happy a length behind. With 3 1/2 furlongs remaining, 6-1 Diva Delite, who was 7th at the time, clipped heels with 38-1 C C's Pal and fell, causing Seeking the Title to stumble over her and dump her jockey. Entering the stretch, Khancord Kid tired allowing Acting Happy to inherit the lead at the 3/16 pole, getting the mile in 1:36.70. 8-1 No Such Word, who was 8th early, put in a strong rally late but was left with too much ground to make up, as Acting Happy cruised under the line 1 1/2 lengths in front in 1:50.00. It was another 2 1/4 lengths back to favorite Tidal Pool third.
