What the Nation is saying about the 2010 United Nations (G1)...

European invader Chinchon made a dramatic swooping move around the far turn and then rolled right on by his rivals in the stretch to capture the $750,000 Betfair TVG United Nations Stakes (G1) at Monmouth Park on Saturday. In the day’s other Breeders’ Cup Challenge Win and You’re In event, Phipps S...Read More

  • medlocke · I had seen the race replays of Chinchon's last 2 races in France. Where he won the Prix Exbury and ran 4th in the Grand Prix De Chantilly. In both races, he closed very strongly from the rear of the field. Knowing that the racetracks in France are usually slower, soft turf. I remembered thinking if this colt ever got a chance to race outside of France on firmer, faster turf that he'd be a handful. When I saw him on the United Nations card today, I played him immediately. Which made my day, because I'd been on a bit of a losing streak of late. LOL. I knew Momouth's turf is notoriously fast anyway. I played Chinchon a straight $20 to win, and it returned $96. Not a wheelbarrow load by any means. But just a good feeling to have handicapped one right again, and won some money instead of donating. At-a-boy Go Go Gomez!! · 1382 days ago ·
