Lady Eli, Imperia capture 2-year-old turf stakes at Belmont Park


NEW YORK — Lady Eli and Imperia won the $200,000 turf stakes for 2-year-olds Sunday at Belmont Park.

Lady Eli captured the Miss Grillo for fillies by three lengths over Margaret Reay, improving to 2 for 2 for trainer Chad Brown. Ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr., Lady Eli ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.50 and paid $9.80 to win.

Imperia got his second win in two races, rallying for a one-length score over Vision Perfect in the Pilgrim. Javier Castellano picked up the mount after Rajiv Maragh broke his arm in a spill Saturday in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. The Kiaran McLaughlin trainee was timed in 1:41.36 and paid $13 to win.
