Three graded stakes-placed fillies will be looking to claim the title of graded stakes winner Nov. 3 in the $250,000 Tempted Stakes (gr. III) at Aqueduct Racetrack.
Pennsylvania-bred filly by Jump Start is now unbeaten in three starts after winning six-furlong Matron Stakes (gr. II) in 1:10.57. Favored Sweet Whiskey was a length back in second.
Trainer Todd Pletcher swept last year's Matron and Futurity stakes for 2-year-olds last year at Belmont Park with Kauai Katie and Overanalyze, and is well positioned to try it again Sept. 29 in New York.
