Trainer Graham Motion has brought Sharing along step by step and the filly has responded beautifully to the careful plan. In her seven starts, she has garnered five wins, including a prestigious Grade 1, and has never been worse than third.
That single third-place finish, when she was beaten less than a length, came in July 2019 at Saratoga in her very first start. After that promising debut she reeled off three straight wins to complete her 2-year-old season, advancing from another maiden special weight at Saratoga to the black-type Selima Stakes at Laurel Park. She culminated this run with a 1 1/4-length score over 13 rivals in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1) at Santa Anita. In the process she learned to win over distances from 5 1/2 furlongs to 1 1/16 miles, usually racing within a few lengths of the leaders before making her bid in the stretch.
After a six-month break, Sharing started her 3-year-old season the same way she ended her 2-year-old season—with a stakes win, the Tepin Stakes at Churchill Downs.
Motion next sent Sharing to one of the most prestigious race meets in the world, England’s Royal Ascot. Racing much farther back than usual—turning for home she had only one horse beat—and over the softest turf she had yet faced, she rallied to take second in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes. Returning to the US, she added the Edgewood Stakes presented by Forcht Bank (G2) to her win column.
Sharing trains at Motion’s East Coast base, Fair Hill Training Center in Maryland, which offers European-style open gallops for morning exercise.
Winning a Breeders’ Cup race is a family tradition for Sharing. Her mother, Shared Account, also trained by Motion, won the 2010 Filly & Mare Turf (G1); her father, Speightstown, won the 2004 Sprint (G1); and her maternal grandfather, Pleasantly Perfect, won the 2003 Classic (G1).
Sagamore Farm LLC raced and owned Shared Account and bred her talented daughter in Maryland.
Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners bought Sharing for $350,000 out of the 2018 Fasig-Tipton New York Saratoga Select Yearling Sale. Antony Beck’s Gainesway Farm came in for half shortly after the sale. She has rewarded them with $1,038,751 in earnings.
In addition to Sharing and Shared Account, Motion has two other Breeders’ Cup winners: Main Sequence in the 2014 Longines Turf (G1) and Better Talk Now in the 2004 Turf. Sharing was the first Breeders’ Cup winner for each of her owners.
