Japanese-bred and owned Nuovo Record, a winner of almost $5 million in her career, will carry highweight of 122 pounds versus nine older filly and mare rivals Thanksgiving Day Thursday in the $100,000 Red Carpet Stakes at the marathon distance of a mile three-eighths over Del Mar’s infield grass course.

Post time for the first race Thursday will be 11 a.m. in recognition of the holiday.

The five-year-old daughter of Sunday Silence stallion Heart’s Cry will be ridden by regular jockey Yasunari Iwata for owner Reiko Hara and trainer Makoto Saito as she attempts to rebound from an eleventh-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare at Santa Anita. She has  been training at Del Mar  for the past two weeks.

Among those opposing Nuovo Record in the Red Carpet will be a pair of invaders from the East, French-bred Arles, second in the Glen Falls at Saratoga in her U.S. debut last summer, and Swear By It, a distance-loving mare by Broken Vow. Joel Rosario has the mount on Arles for trainer H. Graham Motion while Norberto Arroyo, Jr., will pilot Swear By It for conditioner Nicholas Esler.

Other entrants in a strong line-up of distaff runners are Generosidade, Tiago Pereira; Frenzified, Santiago Gonzalez; Into The Mystic, Flavien Prat; Ginga, Altair Domingos; Fresh Feline, Victor Espinoza; Dreamarcher, Mike Smith, and Barleysugar, Gary Stevens. On the also-eligible list is Backintheacademy, Rito Almanza.
