Dam Of Breeders’ Cup Winner Newspaperofrecord to be Offered at Tattersalls December Sale
Sunday Times Carrying Lope De Vega Own Sibling to Newspaperofrecord
Outstanding broodmare SUNDAY TIMES, the dam of American superstar filly NEWSPAPEROFRECORD, is to be offered for sale at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Mares Sale which takes place November 29th - December 2nd.
The twelve-year-old daughter of HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR is carrying a LOPE DE VEGA own sibling to NEWSPAPEROFRECORD whose unbeaten two-year-old career culminated in a breathtaking 7 length romp in the 2018 Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Churchill Downs. Purchased at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and trained by Chad Brown, NEWSPAPEROFRECORD raced in the colours of Seth Klarman’s Klaravich Stables and added to her Grade 1 tally with another effortless win over a mile in last year’s Grade 1 Just A Game Stakes at Belmont Park.
Quoted after NEWSPAPEROFRECORD’s extraordinary Breeders’ Cup performance Chad Brown said; “Today she showed how good she really is and for her to win as easy as she did is remarkable,” while Thoroughbred Daily News columnist Bill Finley wrote that “her performance might well be regarded as one of the best in the history of the series.”
NEWSPAPEROFRECORD is the third foal out of SUNDAY TIMES, herself a top-class race filly who won the Group 3 Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster for her owner Allan Belshaw as well as finishing second in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes. Her first foal CLASSICAL TIMES, by LAWMAN, who was also raced by Belshaw, won the Listed Cecil Frail Stakes at Haydock beating the high-class Group 2 and Group 3 winners RAVEN’S LADY and DIFFERENT LEAGUE, 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 amongst the highlights of the forthcoming December Mares Sale.
SUNDAY TIMES’ Listed placed SHAMARDAL half-sister QUESTION TIMES is equally illustrious, having produced six winners to date including 2018 Group 1 Irish Derby winner LATROBE, the Group 3 Gladness Stakes winner DIAMOND FIELDS and the Listed winner PINK DOGWOOD who was second to ANAPURNA in the 2019 Oaks and third in the Irish Oaks.
Both SUNDAY TIMES and DAILY TMES will be offered on behalf of Allan Belshaw from Richard and Sally Aston’s Goldford Stud. Commenting on the sale of SUNDAY TMES, 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."
