Graham Motion wins a stakes at Belmont a day after Sharing ran a great second at Ascot

ELMONT, N.Y.--Bredenbury, trained by Graham Motion, won the $80,000, 6 furlong Lady Shipman Stakes on the turf at Belmont on June 21, one day after Sharing finished second in the $332,500, Group 1 Coronation Stakes at 1 mile on the turf at Ascot.

Sharing Breeders CupSharing winning the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies turf"Sharing ran very well," said Motion, who wasn't at Ascot due to travel restrictions from Covid-19. "She just came up against a better horse."

Alpine Star (Ire), trained by Mrs. Harrington and ridden by Frankie Dettort, won race on Ascot's last day, but Sharing, ridden Oisun Murphy, beat the favorite, Quadrilateral (GB), trained by Roger Charlton.

It had poured all day a couple of days before Sharing's race, and the ground was deep and holding.

"Sharing had never run on ground like that before, so we didn't know how it affected her, but my jockey said the ground held her back," said Motion.

Motion said Sharing would be back in the Stated on Wednesday, June 24, and that her next race would probably be the $250,000 Del Mar Oaks, for 3-year-olld fillies at 1 1/8 miles on the turf on Aug. 22.

Dettori, the exuberant jockey whose signature movement is his huge leap up in the air from his mount's back in the winner's circle, rode his 70th winner at Ascot on Thursday, 30 years to the day after his first win there, and was presented with a blanket embossed with "70" which he plans to auction off for charity.

On the same day, American trainer Wesley Ward won the second race, the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes, with Stonestreet Stable LLC's 2-year-old filly Campanelle.

Campanelle was also ridden by Dettori, who was Ascot's leading rider.


BREDENBURY, owned by Andrew Stone and ridden by Luis Saez, won the Lady Shipman Stakes for 3-year-old fillies by 1 1/4 lengths after running second, two wide, before taking command at the eighth pole.

Motion had run her four times prior to her start in the Lady Shipman, with her best finish having been a second in an Allowance Optional Claiming race at Tampa Bay on Feb. 7.

"She ran a really good race at Belmont," said Motion. "I haven't looked for another race for her yet. I didn't expect her to win that way. That opens a lot of doors for us.."
