Brushed by a Star Runs for New Connections

Brushed by a Star, who scored a narrow win over Joyful Victory in the Chilukki (Grade II) for owner Team Forster and trainer Grant Forster, will make her first start for her new connections in Thursday’s $150,000-added Falls City Handicap (GII) at Churchill Downs.
 
Following her victory in the Chilukki, Brushed by a Star was sent to Lexington and sold for $400,000 at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale. She was then sent back to Louisville to continue training under Eddie Kenneally.
 
“The new owner is a partnership group: Unlimited Equine LLC,” Kenneally said. “We’ve seen all her races this year. She won the Molly Pitcher (GII at Monmouth) and the Iowa (Distaff at Prairie Meadows), too. She’s a very nice filly and has a lot of residual value as well.”
 
In preparation for the Falls City, Brushed by a Star breezed a half-mile in :47.20 on Friday. It was the second fastest work of 35 at the distance.
 
“She worked very well,” Kenneally said. “She came to us very good. She’s sound and healthy. We’ll try not to change anything. She just won a Grade II. They did a fine job with her.
 
“She’s already had a Grade II prep for another Grade II. They’re 19 days apart, which isn’t ideal, but she’s had a fairly light year.”
 
Brushed by a Star will be ridden by Corey Lanerie and carry the top weight of 122 pounds in the Falls City.
