Formal Arrangement the one to beat

Email

Formal Arrangement is the one to beat in the $50,000 Tomboy at River Downs. Formal Arrangement will face nine other Ohio-bred 3-year-old fillies in the 1 1/16-mile turf race.

Trained by Miguel Feliciano, Formal Arrangement finished second, beaten two lengths, in the $50,000 Angenora at Thistledown on May 2 when facing older horses for the first time. The winner of the Angenora was Pay the Man, the 2007 Ohio 3-year-old filly of the year.

Formal Arrangement's last four races were in stakes, with her best finish coming in the $65,000 Gasparilla at Tampa Bay Downs, a second, beaten a half-length, while going seven furlongs. Jockey Andrew Ramgeet, who was aboard for her three stakes starts at Tampa Bay Downs, again has the mount.

Part Girlie Girl won an allowance prep for the Tomboy on May 2 by 3o3/4 lengths, making her the main threat to Formal Arrangement.

Part Girlie Girl beat four of her nine Tomboy rivals in that one-mile prep.

Got Bling finished second in her first out this year, which came on the Gulfstream Park turf course in an allowance race. She will be treated with Lasix for the first time. Got Bling, trained by Tim Hamm, finished third behind Part Girlie Girl on May 2 as the even-money favorite.
