Tiznow's Red Ruby much the best in $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan (G2)
Friday, May 18, 2018
Red Ruby thoroughly dominated Friday's Black-Eyed Susan S. (G2) over a sloppy Pimlico racetrack, rolling by 4 3/4-lengths in the first graded stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Tiznow.

Red Ruby, owned by her breeders Sandra Sexton and Silver Fern Farm, had been in consideration for the Kentucky Oaks (G1), but skipped that race in favor of Friday's race. 

That decision proved her connections correct. After pressing the pace for six furlongs, the gray filly put away Coach Rocks and drew off convincingly. The final time over the off going was 1:50.17 for the 1 1/8-miles.

“We knew she liked the off going,” said trainer Kellyn Gorder. “She broke really well. [Jockey] Paco [Lopez] had her really relaxed out there on the outside. When he started looking around where everyone else was, I was confident.”

Red Ruby, winner of the Martha Washington S. in February, is now 3-1-0 in five starts and has banked $283,000. 

Pedigree Notes from the TDN:
Red Ruby is the 41st individual graded stakes winner for her sire and is one of four stakes winners for her unplaced dam, a half-sister to the good New York-bred sprinter Kashatreya. Red Ruby’s third dam Kshesinskaya was responsible for two-time GSW Lady At Peace. Red Ruby’s year-younger half-sister Tobago (Pioneerof the Nile), a May 17 foal and a $425,000 purchase by Cromwell Bloodstock at last year’s Keeneland September sale, breezed three-eighths of a mile in :37.20 Friday morning at Fair Hill.
