Speedway Stables' AUBERGE (Palace) was named a 'TDN Rising Star' when decimating a field of Santa Anita maidens by 7 3/4 lengths at first asking in October 2019 before completing a Bob Baffert exacta behind Bast (Uncle Mo) in last year's GII Santa Ynez S. The Iowa-bred makes her first appearance since easily taking out a first-level allowance at Santa Anita 13 months ago and has joined the Mike Stidham shedrow, with several good-looking works on display in New Orleans. Auberge, who hails from the female family of champion Banshee Breeze (Unbridled), was a $140,000 Fasig-Tipton November weanling, a $170,000 Keeneland September yearling and was purchased by Speedway for $570,000 at Fasig-Tipton Gulfstream in 2019. She is a half-sister to multiple Iowa-bred stakes winner Theperfectvow (Majesticperfection). TJCIS PPs
