Tempted Stakes

The Tempted Stakes is an American Thoroughbred horse race held annually since 1975 at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York. Run near the end of October, the Grade III race is open to 2-year-old fillies and is raced on dirt over a distance of one mile (8 furlongs). It currently offers a purse of $100,000.

The race is named in honor of Tempted, voted U.S. Champion Handicap Mare in 1959.

In 1976, the honest race mare, Pearl Necklace, won this race. Our Mims placed. In 1979, it was won by Genuine Risk. In 1990, it was one by another future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame filly, Flawlessly.
