Georgie's Angel Seeks Better Result

After showing tremendous promise winning the Grade 3 Schuylerville on July 22 at Saratoga Race Course, Georgie's Angel found the Grade 1 Spinaway a bit too tough in her subsequent start as she finished fourth.

The daughter of Bellamy Road will attempt to regain her winning form Sunday when she takes on four other runners in the Grade 3, $100,000 Tempted, a six-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies at Belmont Park.

Trainer Todd Pletcher sent Georgie's Angel through a slow four-furlong work in 52.67 seconds on September 18 and then stepped it up in preparation for the Tempted.

"It was designed as a slow work," Pletcher said, "then she breezed back in company Sunday and went in 48.22 and went well. I didn't think she got a wonderful trip in the Spinaway. She was kind of stuck down inside and didn't seem to fire her 'A' race. We hope to change her post position. We'd like to be toward the outside."

Georgie's Angel, the 8-5 second choice on the morning line, drew post position 4 for the Tempted, which previously was run as a one-mile race at Aqueduct but cut back this year to six furlongs at Belmont Park. Pletcher said he does not see Georgie's Angel as a possible Breeders' Cup entrant, but, rather, is just hoping to get back on track.

"We're just focused on the Temped and we'll see how that goes," he said. "Hopefully, she runs so well we have to reconsider where we are. We're optimistic that at some point she might stretch out."

Trainer Eddie Kenneally's Select Cat, 4-1, drew the inside post for the race. Recently transferred from the barn of Pletcher, the daughter of Tale of the Cat broke her maiden by 5 ½ lengths in a five-furlong race July 25 at Saratoga in the slop and then finished third in the Sorority on September 5 at Monmouth Park.

"She's been with us since we shipped down from Saratoga [on September 7]," said Tom Morley, an assistant for Kenneally. "She's done one piece of work for us and worked very well. We'll take our chances and see where we're at. She's been doing good."

Two runners were supplemented to the Tempted: 7-5 favorite Perennial Song, unbeaten in two starts at Parx Racing for trainer Tony Dutrow, enters off a three-length allowance victory at 5 ½ furlongs; Believe You Can, 6-1, winner of her past two starts at Delaware Park for Larry Jones, runs off a six-furlong allowance score.

Colormesaichi, 15-1, fourth in the Sorority at Monmouth, completes the field. She is trained by Terri Pompay.
