Three Diamonds Farm’s I’m Betty G held off the challenge of a stubborn Riley’s Choice to her outside to earn her first stakes victory in the $75,000 Pearl Necklace, winning the mile and a sixteenth turf test for 3-year-old Maryland-bred fillies by nose.


Making her stakes debut in her fifth start, I’m Betty G rushed to the lead out of the gate, led throughout and held off the Sagamore Farm filly, a daughter of Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf-G1 winner Shared Account, to complete the distance in 1:40.29 over firm turf.

I’m Betty G made her first three starts on dirt before being switched to the turf by new trainer Mike Maker for a seven and a half-length maiden claiming victory May 20 at Indiana Downs. The daughter of Into Mischief had previously been based in New York with Todd Pletcher. A $27,000 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling, I’m Betty G sold for $150,000 at the May sale to Three Diamonds Farm. She was bred by Carol Kaye and Boyce Stable, who also bred and raced her winning dam Lady in Ermine (by Honour and Glory). I’m Betty G is the mare’s second foal.
