TDN Rising Star‘ Newspaperofrecord (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) has been ruled out of a trip to Royal Ascot for next month’s G1 Coronation S. The Klaravich Stables colorbearer could not have been more impressive in three attempts over yielding sod last year, capped by a 6 3/4-length romp in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Nov. 2. She settled for a well-beaten second at 1-5 last time, however, in Churchill’s GIII Edgewood S. May 3. “It was good of Chad Brown to show so much enthusiasm and commitment to the project from her win in the Breeders’ Cup and to see that backed up with an entry in the Coronation S.,” Nick Smith, Ascot’s director of racing and communications, told At the Races. “It’s very disappointing for all that the prep race didn’t give them the confidence to carry on.”
