Pearls Galore (Fr) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), beaten less than 2 ½ lengths combined when second in the Sept. 11 G1 Matron S. and Oct. 3 G1 Prix de la Foret, is a potential candidate for Del Mar's Breeders' Cup meeting in November. A dual Group 3 winner earlier this year in the G3 Brownstown S. at Fairyhouse on July 11 and the Aug. 26 G3 Fairy Bridge S. at Tipperary, the 4-year-old is a Haras de Saint Pair homebred.

“We were very happy with her. She ran a great race on ground that wasn't ideal for her,” said trainer Paddy Twomey. “Take nothing away from the winner, who was very impressive on the day, but she ran a great race. She's a tough filly, and we're pleased with her.”

“We'll see how she is in the next week to 10 days. America is a live option for her at the minute. She'll like fast ground and a tight track with a bend there. We'll have a look at the options but we certainly wouldn't rule the Breeders' Cup out.”
