European invader La Pelosa
rallied to capture Woodbine’s Grade 1 Natalma
Sunday, securing herself a spot in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup
Juvenile Fillies Turf.

The 2-year-old Irish-bred filly sat close to the back of the 13-horse field
while Eyeinthesky set fractions of 22.98, 45.36 and 1:09.08. The pacesetter
tried to go on turning for home but jockey Jamie Spencer urged La Pelosa down the center,
quickly making up ground.

La Pelosa, conditioned by Charlie Appleby for Godolphin, completed the mile in

My Gal Betty, Bold Script and Pivottina finished behind the winner. The
Breeders’ Cup Juvenile races are scheduled for Friday, Nov. 2 at Churchill
