Newspaperofrecord (Ire)¬†(Lope de Vega {Ire}‚??Sunday Times {GB}, by Holy Roman Emperor {GB}) entered this unveiling with a reputation that preceded her, and she came out of it a¬†‚??TDN Rising Star‚??¬†after an extremely impressive effort reminiscent of some of her Eclipse winning-trainer‚??s superstar turf trainees. Pounded down to 3-2 favoritism, the 200,000gns Tattersalls October yearling acquisition sat in a well-held second behind splits of :25.05 and :50.45. She could be bottled up no more as she tugged her way to the lead through six panels in 1:15.77, and from there the bay put on a show, widening her margin with every stride despite cruising to the line under a Irad Ortiz, Jr. hammerlock. Keeping with the theme of Chad Brown-trained exactas and trifectas, Newspaperofrecord‚??s stablemate¬†Sister Kitten¬†(Kitten‚??s Joy) came on for second.

The Ballylinch Stud resident Lope de Vega had enjoyed an outstanding day at the Arqana August Sale on Sunday, with a half-brother to recent G2 Vintage S. hero Dark Vision (Ire) (Dream Ahead) selling for ‚?¨900,000 to MV Magnier and another colt going the way of the China Horse Club for ‚?¨600,000 just a few hips later. He was also responsible for Saturday‚??s GII Lake Placid S. runner-up Capla Temptress (Ire).

Newspaperofrecord is a half-sister to Classical Times (GB) (Lawman {Fr}), SW & GSP-Eng, and a yearling filly by Gleneagles (Ire). Her dam is a half to the stakes-placed dam of this year‚??s G1 Irish Derby winner Latrobe (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) and GSW Diamond Fields (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Ire}).
