Shimmering Aspen prepsfor Black-Eyed Susan

Hillwood Stables' 3-year-old filly Shimmering Aspen breezed six furlongs Thursday morning at Pimlico Race Course for a likely start in the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan (G2) on May 19. Jockey Steve Hamilton was aboard for the work, which went in 1:15 over a fast main track. Laurel Park-based trainer Rodney Jenkins said Shimmering Aspen, an impressive winner of her last three starts, galloped out seven furlongs in 1:27 and a mile in 1:43. Jenkins and Hillwood's Ellen Charles, whose mother bred and raced horses in Maryland and father was a steward at Maryland tracks for many years, were at Pimlico to watch the work. Among the horses expected to run in the Black-Eyed Susan are a pair from Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher, maiden winner Moana and Lights of Medina, who earned an automatic berth with her victory in the Weber City Miss on April 22; Grade 2-placed Summer Luck and Torrent, most recently fourth in the Fantasy (G3) on April 14.
