She Feels Pretty (f, 3, Karakontie {Jpn}–Summer Sweet, by More Than Ready), winner of last year’s GI Natalma S. at Woodbine and third as the favorite after a wide journey in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita, returned to the races with a stylish win in Friday’s $100,000 Hilltop S. at Pimlico.

The 3-5 favorite was fifth rounding the clubhouse turn and up in spot into fourth down the backstretch. She traveled kindly just behind the leaders rounding the far turn and exploded down the stretch to win by six lengths. Just Better (Justify) was second.

The final time for the one-mile Hilltop was 1:38.59.

Sales history: $240,000 yrl ’22 KEESEP.

Lifetime Record: 4-3-0-1.

O-Lael Stables; B-Payson Stud Inc. (Ky); T-Cherie DeVaux.
