Found wins the Breeders' Cup Turf at Keeneland in October.

Found, unraced since winning the $3 million Breeders’ Cup Turf at Keeneland last October, is expected to be an odds-on favorite for her 4-year-old debut in Sunday’s $53,500 Alleged Stakes at The Curragh in Ireland.

Found is part of a field of seven in the Alleged Stakes, run at 1 1/4 miles on turf, and was listed as a 10-11 chance on Friday by the European bookmaker Coral, which is sponsoring the race.

Trained by Aidan O’Brien for Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Susan Magnier, Found has won 4 of 11 starts and earned $2,867,857. The BC Turf is her richest win in a career that includes a victory in the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac for 2-year-olds in France in 2014.

Found has a diverse group of rivals in the Alleged Stakes. The field includes Bocca Baciata, who won the Group 3 Dance Design Fillies Stakes in Ireland last August and was fifth of 12 in the Group 1 British Champion Fillies and Mares Stakes at Ascot last October.

The Alleged Stakes is the first start of the year for Success Days, who was last of 12 in the English Derby following a win in a Group 3 race in Ireland.

O’Brien also runs Father Christmas, a 4-year-old colt who was third in the Group 2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot last June in his latest start.

In the preceding race, Endless Drama, unraced since a second in the Group 1 Irish 2000 Guinueas last May, starts in the $71,100 Gladness Stakes at seven furlongs.

The Group 3 Gladness Stakes drew a field of nine. O’Brien starts Dick Whittington, the winner of the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes for 2-year-olds in 2014.
