We are just a day away from Preakness but before that happens we have to celebrate Black-Eyed Susan Day at the Pimlico.

This is an event geared toward the ladies with lots of shopping, champagne, and horse races. If you are planning on going make sure you have your fascinator ready, there is even a fashion contest called 'Hooves and Heels' where 10 women will be chosen to show off their best Black-Eyed Susan outfit.

If you need something to wear tomorrow at Preakness you can do some shopping at the Girl's Galleria where there will be dozens of boutiques and shops, all owned by women. You can also buy a ticket to the flute club which includes bottomless mimosas and access to the champagne bars.

Black-Eyed Susan Day also raises awareness about two important charities, the Komen Maryland and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
