Favorite loses Susan race

BALTIMORE — Canada-bred Interstatedaydream mounted a bold stretch run to hold off race favorite Adare Manor and win the $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Friday.

Starting from the ninth post, Interstatedaydream won for the third time in five career starts and has never finished out of the money. Jockey Florent Geroux has been aboard the Brad Cox-trained filly in each of her three races this year, finishing with two firsts and a third.

It’s the first Black-Eyed Susan victory for Geroux and Cox.

Interstatedaydream led at the top of the stretch and many in the Pimlico crowd expected Adare Manor and jockey John Velazquez to mount a challenge. But Interstatedaydream refused to yield the lead and won by 1™ lengths.

In her last start, Interstatedaydream tired late and finished third in a Grade 1 stakes race at Keeneland last month.

Panthers add grad transfer

PITTSBURGH — The Pitt Panthers men’s basketball team announced the signing of Marquette graduate transfer Greg Elliott on Friday.

The 6-foot-3 guard totaled 644 points, 241 rebounds, 137 assists and 94 3-point field goals in in 114 career games with the Golden Eagles.

“Greg is a talented guard who brings toughness, three-point shooting, experience and maturity to our backcourt rotation,” Pitt coach Jeff Capel said.

The Detroit, Mich., native averaged a career-best 7.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists last season, while playing under 17 minutes per game. He went 34-of-88 (.386) from 3-point range and was an 88.7 percent (47-of-53) shooter from the free throw line.

Elliott scored a career-high 25 points in a win over DePaul, going 7-of-11 from the field, 4-of-6 from three, and 7-of-7 from the foul line. He also had 22 points, while going 6-of-9 from 3-point range, in a December loss to No. 4 UCLA.

ACC revenue goes way up

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference reported a record total of $578.3 million in revenue for the 2020-21 fiscal year with the addition of Notre Dame as a full football member for one season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The league’s tax filing released Friday showed a 16.4% increase in revenue from $496.7 million in the previous year. There was also a nearly 20% increase in TV revenue in the second full season with the ESPN-partnered ACC Network.

The league distributed an average of nearly $36.1 million to member schools. That included roughly $34.9 million to Notre Dame, which typically receives a partial share as a football independent.

Notre Dame gave up its independence for a year due to the pandemic in 2020.

By comparison, the ACC distributed an average of roughly $32.4 million for 2019-20 to its 14 full members with Notre Dame receiving about $10.8 million. And TV revenue has increased from roughly $288.6 million for the 2018-19 fiscal year ahead of the August 2019 launch of the ACC Network to $397.4 million in the filing for 2020-21.
