Park officials announced
Thursday that the $750,000 United Nations Stakes (G1), to be run on Saturday,
July 3, will be sponsored by Betfair/TVG.
“They have been our seasonal partner for several years,” said Bill Knauf,
Monmouth’s assistant vice president of Thoroughbred racing, “and we’re excited
that they are going to sponsor our major turf race of the year. We’re delighted
they will also be a part of one of our biggest wagering days.”
The mile and three-eighths grass U.N., which will be run for the 57th time this
year, will be named the Betfair/TVG United Nations.
The U.N., which has a long championship history, will be part of a special Pick
Five that Saturday, presented by Betfair/TVG, that will have a guaranteed
minimum pool of $250,000.
The race will be televised live on July 3 as part of a special TVG show.
