The undefeated Newspaperofrecord, who capped off her sensational 2-year-old campaign with an eye-opening win in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on November 2 at Churchill Downs, is training forwardly at Palm Meadows.
Trainer Chad Brown stated that the 3-year-old Irish-bred daughter of Lope de Vega will make her sophomore debut on Churchill Downs' Kentucky Oaks undercard in the Grade 3 $250,000 Edgewood on May 2.
Her latest recorded breeze was a five-furlong move over the grass in 1:01.20 at Palm Meadows.
Brown said that the newly designed Turf Tiara series is a good option for the star filly.
“It's something we're considering,” said Brown of the Turf Tiara. “She's doing well. She's been in training down at Palm Meadows and we're just working toward a seasonal debut in the Edgewood with her.”
Newspaperofrecord was purchased by owner Klaravich Stables for $278,019 from the consignment operation of Goldford Stud at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale in 2017. She is out of the Group 1-placed Holy Roman Emperor broodmare Sunday Times.
Brown also reported that her stablemate Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup Turf winner Bricks and Mortar would also make his next start over the Matt Winn Turf Course at Churchill Downs on May 3 in the Grade 1, $1 million Old Forester Turf Classic. Owned by Klaravich in partnership with William Lawrence, the son of Giant's Causeway earned an automatic berth towards the 1 1/8-mile event at Churchill Downs in his last effort, where he took the Grade 2 Muniz Memorial Handicap on March 23 at Fair Grounds.
