Dam of Newspaperofrecord to be offered at Tattersalls December Sale
Sunday Times is carrying a Lope De Vega sibling to the Breeders' Cup star
Sunday Times, the dam of American superstar filly Newspaperofrecord, is to be offered at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Mares Sale.
The 12-year-old daughter of Holy Roman Emperor is carrying a Lope De Vega full sibling to Newspaperofrecord, whose unbeaten two-year-old career culminated in a sensational performance in the 2018 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.
Bred by Allan Belshaw, she was bought at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and also landed last year’s Grade 1 Just A Game Stakes at Belmont Park for Chad Brown and Klaravich Stables.
Newspaperofrecord is the third foal out of Sunday Times, who won the Group 3 Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster as well as finishing second in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes.
Her first foal Classical Times won the Listed Cecil Frail Stakes at Haydock before being sold to Juddmonte Farms, and her fourth foal, the winning Gleneagles filly Daily Times, in foal to Lope De Vega, will also be offered at the sale between November 29th and December 2.
Sunday Times' half-sister Question Times is the dam of Irish Derby winner Latrobe, Group 3 winner Latrobe and 2019 Oaks runner-up Pink Dogwood.
Sunday Times and Daily Times will be offered on behalf of Belshaw from Richard and Sally Aston’s Goldford Stud.
Richard Aston said: “Sunday Times is a truly outstanding broodmare with a great future. She was a very smart race filly, she has produced a champion two-year-old, she has a current Classic pedigree which will appeal to breeders from all over the world and she is gorgeous.
"It is a rare combination and Mr Belshaw will be racing Newspaperofrecord's yearling own sister and this year’s Kingman filly foal, which is why he has decided to sell both Sunday Times and Daily Times."
