Facing things she hasn’t faced before, keeping right when she left the gate, right hand turn half way through the race, good to soft ground, uphill finish. It was a true test over a mile in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes against the top fillies in Europe. She chased home a winner who obviously will get more distance, to be a comfortable second. Obviously it would have been nice to win but to do what she did today has made everyone who has ever had the pleasure of being connected with this sweet, competitive filly, very, very proud of her.
Jockey Oisin Murphy knows Royal Ascot well and gave her great praise…
Oisin Murphy, who rode Sharing, said the softer going was not ideal for the Graham Motion-trained winner of the 2019 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1T), who ran a huge race regardless.”Sharing is a champion on really fast turf and she didn’t get her conditions,” he said. “Everyone should be very proud and hopefully it persuades Graham Motion to have more horses here next year. It was a massive performance. She was the best juvenile filly on turf in America last year and is a huge, physical filly.”
In other Stake news in the US we had two tough beats, both by a neck, in a Grade 1 and Grade 2, grrrrr! Both Kathanka in his Grade 1 and English Bee in his Grade 2 were stepping up in class from previous places in similar so they both ran great.
