United Nations Field Takes Shape

A strong field of older horses, including a couple of wild cards, is lining up to go in the $750,000 Betfair/TVG United Nations Stakes (G1), which kicks off the Independence Day weekend festivities on Saturday, July 3.


The field will be topped by Patricia Generazio’s Presious Passion, who will be going for a third straight victory in the mile and three-eighths turf test. But the 7-year-old gelding will get plenty of competition from the likes of the Christophe Clement-trained Winchester, who beat Gio Ponti in the Grade 1 Manhattan Handicap at Belmont last out; Telling, who won the Grade 1 Sword Dancer at Saratoga last summer, and Take the Points, who won two Grade 1 events last year and this year was disqualified after finishing first in the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap.


Adding spice to the mix is the likely appearance of Europe’s Chinchon, a Irish-bred 5-year-old who has been racing in France, and Jeune-Turc, a Brazilian-bred runner who would be making his first U.S. start after a successful stakes campaign in his native land.
