United Nations Attracts Ten

A field of 10, including a quartet of Grade or Group 1 winners, will assemble at Monmouth Park this Saturday for the Grade 1, $750,000 United Nations Stakes.  The U.N., one of the most anticipated events of the summer season, will go as race 11 on the 12-race program.

 

Among those entered in the U.N. is last year’s winner Chinchon; Chilean-sensation Belle Watling; Breeders’ Cup winner Eldaafer; and, Grade 1 winner Teaks North, who captured the U.N. prep, the Grade 3 Monmouth Stakes, on June 12.

 

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.

 

The United Nations Stakes is part of the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” series of races.  Saturday’s U.N. winner will receive an automatic berth into the $3 million Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Turf on Saturday, Nov. 5 at Churchill Downs.

 

The full field for the 58th running of the United Nations Stakes is:

At her best, the French mare, Stacelita, will be the one to beat in this year's United Nations. A 4-time G1 winner in France, she ran 3rd in her seasonal debut behind Cirrus Des Aigles in the G3 Prix La Coupe. Stacelita won the G3 Prix La Coupe in 2010, and used the race to vault herself to a 2nd place finish, beaten by a nose, by Midday in the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, and a G1 win at Deauville in the Prix Jean-Romanet. Stacelita also has G1 win's in Prix Saint-Alary, the Prix De Diane(French Oaks), and the Prix Vermeille. She won her first 6 career starts before finally losing her first race in the 2009 Prix De l' Arc De Triomphe to Sea The Stars.
