Georgie's Angel Pointed to Spinaway

Saturday morning, owner Ronnie Sheffer was at trainer Todd Pletcher’s barn to visit with his Grade 3 Schuylerville winner, Georgie’s Angel, who will now be pointed to the Grade 1 Spinaway on Sunday, September 4.


Sheffer, a Louisville, Ky. attorney, was sporting one of the dozens of Red Sox hats he has in different colors to coordinate with whatever he might be wearing. Saturday’s chapeau was white with a red “B” to go with his red-and-white striped shirt.


“We go up to Fenway every year and try to take in the Yankee series,” said Sheffer, who named the filly in part after George Steinbrenner, and in part after his wife, who was nicknamed “Angel” by her father. The late owner of the Yankees campaigned Georgie’s Angel’s father, Bellamy Road.


Georgie’s Angel is the first horse Sheffer has owned a majority interest in, although he has had small interests in other horses. Last summer, prior to purchasing Georgie’s Angel, Sheffer asked a mutual friend if Pletcher would look at her foal papers, and Pletcher agreed soon afterward to train the filly.


“He’s fortunate that he was able to purchase a really nice filly, and we were lucky he gave her to us to train,” said Pletcher. “She was very professional yesterday and everything worked out like we thought it might.”
