Shareta Wins UK Gr1 Yorkshire Oaks
Overnight in the UK, The Aga Khan's front-running Irish-bred 4YO mare Shareta (Sinndar-Shawara, by Barathea) scored a neck victory for trainer Alain de Royer-Dupre over fellow fillies The Fugue (Dansili-Twyla Tharp, by Sadler's Wells) & Was (Galileo-Alluring Park, by Green Desert) in the £310,000 Yorkshire Oaks (12 furlongs) for females 3YO+ at York. Due a change of luck, dual Gr1-placed Shareta (runner-up last start in France's Gr1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud & in last year's Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp) finished 7th in last year's Gr1 Japan Cup. She now has 4 wins & 7 placings from 13 starts.
