She had a cool name and a hot jockey, but Fiftyshadesofhay didn't look like she had much of a chance for most of Friday's 89th Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course . Riding the 3-year-old filly for the first time, Joel Rosario also gave the horse a new reputation for being able to win coming from behind. Running near the back of the six-horse back for most of the one and an eighth-mile race, the Bob Baffert-trained horse chased down Marathon Lady to win by a neck in 1:53.73.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to dress business casual with my work boots today at Pimlico, but if that's the worst problem we have this weekend, it should be a good time. But before we go forward, let's look back on yesterday's local headlines in the Coffee Companion. - It's going to be a messy Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico, but it should clear up tomorrow for the Preakness Stakes . - California Chrome is the overwhelming favorite after his Kentucky Derby win, but it's hardly guaranteed.

Take vodka, rum, whiskey, bourbon, peach schnapps, orange juice, pineapple juice, sour mix, orange-flavored liqueur, elderflower-flavored liqueur, shake, pour into a souvenir glass and garnish with an orange slice, cherry and mint sprig. Then dump it on the infield grass and get a real drink. It's the poor old black-eyed Susan, the official cocktail of the Preakness. It has been mocked, derided and dismissed as a publicity stunt. Campaigns have been waged to replace it. Its history has been mangled and misunderstood.

Nearly 2 inches of rain fell across the region Thursday night into Friday morning, canceling some races at Pimlico Race Course , closing roads and disrupting rail travel. At Pimlico, all six turf races scheduled for Black-Eyed Susan Day were moved to the dirt track, where conditions were listed as sloppy. But the tracks were expected to dry out in time for Saturday's Preakness. The rainfall, combined with the morning high tide, caused minor flooding on low-lying streets in downtown Annapolis, including Dock Street and Compromise Street.

"Black-Eyed Susans! Get 'em here!" Emanuel Sabedra shouted inside the front gates, above the excited throngs and circling planes and buzzing engines of golf carts zipping by. Sabedra, dressed in maroon and gold jockey shirt, has been hawking the $9 cocktails at Preakness for 12 years. By 11 a.m., he had sold five racks of 24. Butch Hoppe, a 24-year-old trucking company owner, had his first taste of the Preakness staple. "It's alright," he said. "I got it for the souvenir cup more than the drink.

Twelve days ago MI Developments Inc. revealed a $5.5 million bonus program for the Grade I Preakness at Pimlico Race Course. Tuesday, the company announced a similar, $2.2 million bonus for the Grade II Black-Eyed Susan stakes that has been traditionally run for fillies the Friday before the Preakness. To qualify for the $2.2 million bonus, $2 million of which goes to the owner and $200,000 to the trainer, a filly has to win three designated races at Gulfstream Park (the Forward Gal Stakes, the Davona Dale and the Oaks)

The top local entrant for Friday's 89th running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico took one wrong step on Thursday and had to be scratched. Walkwithapurpose, a Maryland-bred owned by Sagamore Farm in Glyndon, was expected to be one of the top contenders in the $500,000 Grade II race run at a mile and one-eighth for 3-year-old-fillies. Thursday afternoon, however, the Sagamore Farm filly had to drop out of the race after bruising her foot earlier in the day during her final gallop on the track at Pimlico in preparation for Friday's race.

Mounted next to Stall 40 in the Preakness Stakes barn at Pimlico Race Course is a three-foot plaque emblazoned by black-eyed susan flowers. Each year, Stall 40 houses the Kentucky Derby winning thoroughbred, and the adjacent wooden sign commemorates the horses that ended their stay at Pimlico with a Preakness victory. If trainers were immortalized on the plague, John Servis would find his name near the bottom, next to one of the latest celebrated horses. Ten years ago, Servis trained Smarty Jones to wins in the 2004 Derby and Preakness before just falling short of claiming the Triple Crown with a second-place finish at the Belmont Stakes.

Trainer Bill Mott didn't have any doubts about the talent possessed by filly Royal Delta heading into Friday's 87th running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes. But her inexperience and temperament gave him plenty of reason for concern. The Black-Eyed Susan was only the fourth start of her career, and it had already been a bit of an adventure. She was coming off a dominant win at the Keeneland Polytrack, but just two months ago she finished ninth in a 10-horse race at Tampa Downs. Was she a dirt horse?

The deluge forecast to soak the region Friday could make for a soggy, miserable Black-Eyed Susan Day at Pimlico Race Course — though officials remain confident in a fast track for a sunny and cool Preakness Stakes on Saturday. A cold front was expected to bring storms overnight and into Friday morning, followed by a moisture-laden low pressure system, according to the National Weather Service. Heavy downpours are expected to dump 2-3 inches of rain, with higher amounts in some areas, flooding streams and small rivers, with a flash flood watch in effect through Friday afternoon.

Friday morning's torrential rain gave fans and handicappers at Pimlico's Black-Eyed Susan Day a much different race card than they had planned for. But by the time the showpiece Black-Eyed Susan Stakes ran under a clear blue sky Friday afternoon and the Counting Crows took the stage later that evening, the torrential downpours that Pimlico officials said dumped 2 1/4 inches of rain at the track were a distant memory. "The track is going to be fast [tomorrow]," Pimlico racing analyst Gabby Gaudet said from her trackside post Friday evening.

Richard Gorelick seems content to let a hundred black-eyed Susans bloom with recipes featuring the likes of ginger beer, Fernet Branca and elderflower liqueur ( "New life for black-eyed Susan drink at Preakness," May 12). I say save your exotics for the betting window. Come post time on Preakness Day, pop open a Maryland brew or a Natty Boh if you must. Then put some ice in an Old-Fashioned glass and top with a generous pour of good rye. If it needs a name, call it a Lazy Susan.

After the Counting Crows released their fifth album, 2008's “Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings,” singer Adam Duritz had had enough - not of the spotlight or the road, but of himself. “I got kind of sick of myself at that point,” Duritz said on the phone from his home in New York recently. “I got tired of just emptying [my] guts onto the page every few years for people. I think I needed a break from it.” So the 49-year-old Baltimore native - who will return on Friday with the Crows to headline the Black-Eyed Susan Day concert at Pimlico Race Course - shifted his focus creatively.

"So competing at Towson Center is a much bigger feeling," said Rebounders meet director Vivian Manekin.The meet will mark the beginning of six months of competition for the Timonium-based Rebounders, whose members range in age from 8 to 17, and for many other local and regional teams.

Counting Crows, The Fray and Annie Bosko will perform at Pimlico Race Course's Black-Eyed Susan Day on May 16, the Maryland Jockey Club announced this morning. The Crows are most famous for their radio-rock run in the '90s, when singles such as "Mr. Jones," "Round Here" and "A Long December" dominated airwaves. (Fans of the movie "Cruel Intentions" will certainly remember the piano ballad "Colorblind" as well.) Expect to hear "Raining in Baltimore," too. The Fray, which released its fourth album "Helios" a couple of weeks ago, is most known for the singles "Over My Head (Cable Car)"

Christina Goodman's hand-painted raven faces left in strict profile, and despite the miniature scale carries the flavor of Renaissance portraiture in the sober expression and fine detail. It's one of her contributions to a small collection of handmade jewelry celebrating Baltimore and Maryland icons. The ravens, crabs, white oaks, orioles, black-eyed Susans and Edgar Allan Poes were on view this weekend as thousands of browsers and buyers strolled through the Baltimore Convention Center for the American Craft Council Show, its 38th year in the city.
