The stakes on Friday's Black-Eyed Susan day at Pimlico got off to a fast start when Super Quick lived up to her name in winning the Grade 3 Allaire Dupont Distaff.

The Super Saver filly trained by Norm Casse led at every call to win the 1 1/8-mile race by 14 1/4 lengths in 1:47.78 with Florent Geroux aboard.

The stakes record for 1 1/8 miles is 1:47.64, set by Mylady Curlin in 2019. (The Dupont was contest at 1 1/16 miles between 2002 and 2013.) The track record of 1:47.20 was established by Private Terms in 1989.

Four-year-old Super Quick earned a 107 Beyer Speed Figure for her effort, the highest of the weekend, according to the Daily Racing Form leaderboard. She also earned a 106 Brisnet Speed Rating and a 123 TimeformUS Speed Figure.

Early Voting's Preakness win the next day earned a 105 Beyer and a 104 Brisnet, with his TimeformUS figure coming in at 128.

Interstatedaydream earned impressive Brisnet (102) and TimeformUS (115) figures for her Black-Eyed Susan (G2) win, but only a 91 Beyer.

Here are the horses with the weekend's top Beyer Speed Figures, with Brisnet and TimeformUS figures where available.
