Brown Chooses Eatontown for Dayatthespa

Dayatthespa and Javier Castellano win the 29th running of the Queen Elizabeth 2 Challenge Cup, Grade 1 $400,000 at Keeneland Racecourse. October 13, 2012.

Trainer Chad Brown has chosen the Grade 3 $100,000 Eatontown Handicap as the second race back for Dayatthespa since the Grade 1 Matriarch Stakes (Nov. 25, 2012 at Hollywood Park), where she cut herself while attempting to jump the fence along the backstretch. 

Dayatthespa won by an impressive four lengths in her first race back after her injury in a stakes event at Belmont (May 5), and Brown hopes that she will continue to flourish in the mile and a sixteenth turf test this Saturday.

 “It was a scary moment in the Matriarch,” said Brown, “but she’s managed to overcome and come back from that. We’re really pleased with her comeback. She seems to be rounding right back into form.”

A 4-year-old filly by City Zip out of M’Lady Doc, Dayatthespa has won six of her last seven races including the Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup and a pair of Grade 3’s all over the grass. In ten career starts Dayatthespa has raked in $633,892 while racing under the colors Jerry Frankel, Ronald Frankel, Steve Laymon, and Bradley Thoroughbreds.  

Although she has not tried Monmouth’s turf course, Chad Brown believes the Eatontown provides a great chance for DayattheSpa to perpetuate her success.

“She’s coming in really well, she’s training great,” Brown said. “The Eatontown is just the next logical spot. Monmouth usually has a nice firm turf course, which she really likes, so we chose to run her here.” 

Jockey Paco Lopez gets the call aboard Dayatthespa in the Eatontown, which goes as race 11 on a 12-race card on Saturday.
