The outstanding Breeders’ Cup Fillies’ Turf winner Newspaperofrecord, is to be aimed at Royal Ascot’s Coronation Stakes.
The Chad Brown trained filly was an awesome winner at Churchill Downs and is set to reappear there on Kentucky Oaks Day, in preparation for a trip to Berkshire.
Nick Smith, head of communications at Ascot, recently met with Brown and reported:
“We had a very encouraging meeting with Chad Brown and he’s very keen to bring Newspaperofrecord to the Coronation Stakes, to the extent he is planning a prep campaign for her very much with Royal Ascot in mind.
“Her first race back will not be rushed. It will be on Kentucky Oaks day at Churchill Downs, and that will be her prep for Royal Ascot – so long as everything goes to plan.
“She really stole the show on the first day of the Breeders’ Cup and it was very much a case of he feels this is a horse he can travel with. She’s straightforward and has the class to compete – she’d have a very serious chance.”
