Georgie's Angel comes into Sunday's Grade 3 Tempted at Belmont Park off a fourth-place finish in the Spinaway.

ELMONT, N.Y. – Georgie’s Angel, currently trained by Todd Pletcher, and Select Cat, formerly trained by Pletcher, head a field of five entered in the Grade 3, $100,000 Tempted for juvenile fillies.

Georgie’s Angel won her debut at Churchill, the Grade 3 Schuylerville on opening day at Saratoga, and comes off a fourth-place finish in the Spinaway.

“She got stuck in a tough spot down inside the whole way,” Pletcher said. “She wasn’t quite quick enough to make the lead and wasn’t quite slow enough to get cleared off and never got into a real comfort zone.”

When trained by Pletcher, Select Cat won her debut at Saratoga by 5 1/2 lengths before finishing third in the Sorority after a slow start at Monmouth. She has been transferred by owners Stuart and Anita Subotnick to Eddie Kenneally.

“She’s done real well since she came in,” Kenneally said. “She’s a quality filly. I’m not crazy about post one.”

Colormesaichi, Perennial Song, and Believe You Can complete the compact field.
