Connections of two young, surprising performers at the 2019 Breeders' Cup are eyeing racing plans for the future.

Sharing, the 13-1 upset winner of the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, could aim for a start in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot next June, trainer Graham Motion told the Daily Racing Form. The Group 1 Coronation is a race for 3-year-old fillies and Motion said Sharing, a daughter of Speghtstown, is a calm type who would do well traveling overseas.

“She'd be a good one to bring over,” Motion told DRF.

Meanwhile, United, the 51-1 longshot who nearly provided the biggest upset of this year's World Championships, could race back as soon as the end of the month, his trainer Richard Mandella told DRF. Mandella said he's looking at the Grade 2 Hollywood Turf Cup at Del Mar Nov. 29.

That race is the same distance, 1 1/2 miles, as the Breeders' Cup Turf, where United looked a winner until Horse of the Year candidate Bricks and Mortar corralled just before the wire. United, a 3-year-old by Giant's Causeway, was making his first Grade 1 start in the Turf.
