Godolphin’s La Pelosa out to shine in Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes

Sport360 staff 2018/07/12

Godolphin‘s highly-promising juvenile filly La Pelosa steps up to G2 level for the Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes over six furlongs on day two of Newmarket’s July Festival on Friday.

The daughter of Dandy Man scored impressively on her debut over the same distance in a novice race at Kempton Park in May.

William Buick, on board for that win, takes the ride again on La Pelosa, who is drawn two and faces eight other two-year-old fillies headed by Main Edition and G2 Queen Mary Stakes runner-up Gossamer Wings.

Trainer Charlie Appleby said: “I have been pleased with the way La Pelosa has come out of her run at Royal Ascot.

“She made all at Kempton on her debut, but I think she learned a lot last time out, when she stayed on well in the closing stages, and the race should have brought her on mentally.

“A repeat performance of her last start should see her bang there.”
