Nine Set for United Nations

A field of nine, including five Grade or Group 1 winners, will assemble at Monmouth Park this Saturday for the Grade 1, $750,000 BetFair/TVG United Nations Stakes. The U.N., one of the most anticipated events of the summer season, will go as race 10 on the 12-race program.


Among those entered in the U.N. is the John Forbes-trained Get Serious, who captured the Grade 3 Monmouth Stakes on June 12, Monmouth Park’s prep for the U.N. Also slated for the U.N. is Acclamation, who exits a victory in the Grade 1 Charles Whittingham at Hollywood on June 5. Trained by Donald Warren, Acclamation will be reunited with Eclipse Award winning jockey Christian Santiago Reyes, who will also make the trip to Oceanport, N.J. from his California headquarters.


Inaugurated at Atlantic City Racecourse in 1953, the U.N. moved to Monmouth Park in 1999. The mile and three-eighths turf race has seen 20 champions and six Breeders’ Cup winners compete in the event.


In addition to day-long coverage of Monmouth Park’s full card, Television Games Network (TVG) will broadcast the United Nations live. TVG is also the presenting sponsor of the $250,000 guaranteed Pick 5, which covers races six through 10 and concludes with the 57th running of the U.N.


The full field, including rider assignments, for the BetFair/TVG United Nations Stakes is:

1. Telling (Eibar Coa)
2. Get Serious (Pablo Fragoso)
3. Acclamation (Christian Santiago Reyes)
4. Straight Story (C.H. Marquez Jr.)
5. Winchester (Cornelio Velasquez)
6. Jeune-Turc (Jose Lezcano)
7. Take the Points (Edgar Prado)
8. Chinchon (Garrett Gomez)
9. Laureate Conductor (Joe Bravo)
