Army Wife, with Joel Rosario aboard, won the Black-Eyed Susan.

Army Wife, ridden by Joel Rosario and trained by Mike Maker, won the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes on Friday at a sun-splashed Pimlico Race Course. Attendance was well below the stated capacity of 10,000.

She covered the mile and an eighth in 1:49.63 to defeat Willful Woman by two and three-quarter lengths. She returned $11 on a $2 bet to win.

Rosario will ride the Japan-based France Go de Ina in the Preakness on Saturday.

Beautiful Gift, trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by John Velazquez, finished seventh in the Black-Eyed Susan. She was subjected to multiple rounds of drug testing ahead of the race because her stablemate Medina Spirit had failed a test after his Kentucky Derby victory.

Velazquez will be aboard Medina Spirit in the Preakness.
