Weather Could be Factor in Black-Eyed Susan

Posted: Updated:
BALTIMORE (AP) - John Servis has never seen Joint Return run on a sloppy track. Like it or not, the esteemed trainer may get that opportunity in the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes.

Heavy rain is predicted for the Baltimore area on Friday, which could play havoc with this Grade 2, $500,000 race for 3-year-old fillies.

Joint Return has won three of four starts this year, but each victory came on a fast track against lesser competition. Her only defeat in 2014 was a fifth-place finish in the Grade 2 Gulfstream Oaks.

Servis says, "She hasn't done a whole lot wrong."

Joint Return received 15-1 odds in the morning line. The favorite is Stopchargingmaria at 7-2, trained by Todd Pletcher, who has two entries in the race.

The race is run over 1 1-8 miles.
