View Full Version : 2yo Filly at Keeneland
10-26-2010, 02:00 PM
Our homebred 2yo filly, SO TEMPTED, is entered in her first race (the 8th on Friday at Keeneland) so I put together a few pictures of how she's been spending her time there this month.
trotting on the training track last week...
schooling in the paddock...
waiting for her last work, Saturday morning...
The race looks pretty tough, but hopefully it will be a good learning experience for her. :)
She's looking terrific and she's grown into that head! Such a gorgeous color.
I'll be watching the race with fingers and toes crossed for you. She's going to want every inch of that distance... nice prospects for her in the future if she can run to her looks and pedigree!

She is a beauty and I hope the race is a good experience for her. I love her name. I will do my best to watch the race on Friday and GOOD LUCK! Thanks for sharing the pics.

Thank you both for the good wishes!
Jas, I hope someday she'll be running longer most likely on turf, but she's worked so well over the Keeneland surface that I'm really happy we're getting the chance to race her on it.
Native Diver, the whole time she was growing up I kept saying to my husband "I am so tempted to keep this filly" and then we did, lol. So combined with the fact that she's by Broken Vow, the name came easily. :)
For what it's worth, Thomas has a really nice Yes It's True filly out of his old Danzig graded stakes winner and producer Ziggy's Act, and although she's most likely a turf filly, she too has been working dynamite over the Keeneland surface. So it appears to be playing up to turf preferences.
I think she goes in this weekend.
Good luck again! Can't wait to watch her run.

She just glows, doesn't she? Will be watching with fingers crossed!

Sorry I was late to the party. I've been swamped at work but I looked at So Tempted's chart this morning.
Smarter people than me have taught me that debuts are usually just for education and you evaluate them by looking at what went right instead of the other way. You want to see that the horse is in the race at some point and seems interested in racing. By that standard, this was a good debut and I wish you luck in the future with her :)
Yeah, she def flashed some talent.
How'd she come out?

Pronzini, thank you and I like your analysis. :)
Jas, she looks great this morning. I saw her for a few minutes before she boarded the van to shop to Churchill. Onward and upward, hopefully.
