That looks like small caps are being used, so:

  • select the sentence
  • hit the 'Small Caps' button as seen below
  • go to 'Type → Change Case → Title Case'. This will capitalize each word and then you'll have to lower case some of the wording by hand (of, and, a).

You can also automate this using two nested GREP styles in your paragraph style:
First set paragraph style as small caps, then set these 2 grep styles:

  1. Change first letter of of each word to Cap
  2. Change back to small caps all words in a serie that you'll define (use pipe sign 'OR' as separator)

If for some reason, you need to capitalize sometimes a word, just like "The" in the example below, you can just type it manually. In option, you can add a third Grep style "Apply Capitalize" to text ^\w to always capitalize first letter of the paragraph.

See example below: first para Normal, second para styled with settings as described.
