Turf Star Newspaperofrecord Sold, Retired; Will Be Bred To Galileo

Breeders’ Cup winner Newspaperofrecord has been sold privately and retired, and she will be bred to all-world sire Galileo in 2021, trainer Chad Brown announced Wednesday on his Twitter account.

A 4-year-old daughter of Lope de Vega, Newspaperofrecord finished her career with five wins in 10 starts, earning $1,122,250 for owner Klaravich Stable.

Bred in Ireland by Times of Wigan Ltd., Newspaperofrecord was purchased by Klaravich Stable at the 2017 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, and brought stateside, where she got off to a fast start on the racetrack. She went undefeated in three starts during her 2-year-old campaign, using the Grade 2 Miss Grillo Stakes as a prep for her 6 3/4-length triumph as the heavy favorite in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

She earned a pair of Grade 3 placings during her 3-year-old season, then came back strong in 2020, notching victories in the G3 Intercontinental Stakes and the G1 Just a Game Stakes. The latter half of her 4-year-old season featured in-the-money efforts in the G1 First Lady Stakes and G2 Churchill Distaff Turf Mile Stakes.

Newspaperofrecord is out of the British Group 3-winning Holy Roman Emperor mare Sunday Times, whose runners also include stakes winner Classical Times.

Galileo stands at Coolmore Stud in Ireland for a private fee. The 22-year-old son of Sadler’s Wells has become a cornerstone of international racing through his progeny on the racetrack, and when they go to the breeding shed themselves.

A European champion in his own right, Galileo’s 2020 runners are led by Group 1 winners Magical, Circus Maximus, Peaceful, Search for a Song, Shale, Mogul, Love, and Serpentine.
