THE feature race tonight is the Grade 1 United Nations Handicap at Monmouth. Favourite Beach Patrol won last summer’s Grade 1 Secretariat Stakes at 1 1/4 miles at Arlington but has failed to win since but had kept Grade 1 company and was fourth in the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Stakes at Belmont Park in June and second in the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic Stakes at Churchill Downs in May. A frontrunner, Beach Patrol will be piloted by regular rider Florent Geroux.
