Found has Classic ambition

Found is set to receive an entry in the Breeders' Cup Classic as well as the Turf event she won 12 months ago, according to Aidan O'Brien.

Found will be given an entry in the Breeders' Cup Classic

A decision has yet to be taken on whether the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine will run at Santa Anita next month, but the master of Ballydoyle has raised the intriguing possibility of a clash with the likes of California Chrome in the 10-furlong Classic on dirt.

Found was last seen losing little in defeat behind Jean-Claude Rouget's Almanzor in the Champion Stakes at Ascot, a run which came just 13 days after her victory at Chantilly.

She followed a similar path 12 months ago, and lowered the colours of Derby hero Golden Horn in the Turf at Keeneland.

O'Brien told At The Races: "I'm not sure she'll be entered in the Filly & Mare, she might be entered in the Turf and she might be entered in the Classic. The lads will decide when the dust settles, see how she is and how everything is, I think.

"She's a great mare, she travels strongly and she stays well. She is gutsy and determined and she's brave.

"Obviously it (Classic) is totally into the unknown, but the lads will talk about that and see what they want to do. But she is a great mare, really.

"She might retire after this year anyway, so it's getting to the end of her runs, but we'll see how she is during the week, she seems to be in good form."

Sky Bet gave Found a 14/1 quote for the Classic behind 5/6 favourite California Chrome while she is 3/1 for the Turf.
