Saturday's United Nations Stakes is the first Grade 1 contest of the summer at Monmouth Park and has been won by the likes of Round Table, Dr. Fager (when it was contested at Atlantic City Racecourse). More recently it's been captured (twice) by Eclipse Champion English Channel.
The Betmix Angler online handicapping software has data on the past six runnings of the "U.N." and we found that the Speed Last Race factor has been highly profitable for bettors.
Half of the winners of this race since 2012 have ranked first in this factor but huge the win return is what we found especially appealing (and surprising). It's usually fair to assume that horses that ran fastest, most recently, would draw a lot of support from the wagering public. However, the average odds of the six contenders is nearly 9-1. That group includes the past two U.N. winners - Funtastic ($48.00) and Bigger Picture ($23.40).
