Making her first start at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., Three Diamonds Farm’s I’m Betty G took control after the first half-mile of the one-mile Lady Canterbury Stakes and held off her six rivals to win by one and a quarter lengths, getting the distance over a firm turf in 1:35.44. It was the second career stakes win for the 4-year-old daughter of Into Mischief.

Last summer I’m Betty G made her stakes debut in Laurel Park’s Pearl Necklace Stakes, for Maryland-bred fillies on the turf at a mile and a sixteenth, and led throughout to win by a nose over Riley’s Choice. Since that win, the Mike Maker-trainee had started nine times at eight different tracks and hit the board in seven stakes, her efforts including thirds in the Grade 3 Pin Oak Valley View Stakes at Keeneland and the Grade 3 Commonwealth Oaks at Laurel. In her start before making the trip to Minnesota she won a Belmont Park turf allowance at seven furlongs in a final time of 1:22.18.

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 made her first three starts on dirt at Aqueduct from the Todd Pletcher barn before being switched to the turf by new trainer Mike Maker for a seven and a half-length maiden claiming victory May 20, 2017, at Indiana Downs.

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 now boasts a record of 14-4-1-5 for earnings of $270,465.
