Trainer Chad Brown has a talented trio competing in Saturday's 68th running of the $500K United Nations Stakes (G1) at Monmouth Park. Aiming for his fourth win in this annual stakes event, Brown sends: TRIBHUVAN, MASTER PIECE, and SERVE THE KING. 


Here's a look at the full field:


The $500K United Nations Stakes (G1) — 1 3/8 miles, Turf,  Three-year-olds and upward. 

Post Time is 5:12 PM ET.


  1. ARKLOW: 8-5

  2. EPIC BROMANCE: 20-1

  3. SERVE THE KING: 8-1

  4. IMPERADOR: 15-1

  5. FANTASIOSO: 12-1

  6. WINTERS BACK: 8-1

  7. OCEAN's MAP: 30-1

  8. MASTER PIECE: 4-1

  9. GLYNN COUNTY: 20-1

  10. TRIBHUVAN: 3-1.


TRIBHUVAN (3-1) from the outside post perhaps carries the highest hopes of the three. He's an ultra-consistent competitor, having finished in the money in all six of his last completed races. More importantly, he finished a solid second to DOMESTIC SPENDING last time out, who is currently America's top grass horse. Look out for this 5-year-old gelding to secure the lead early and try to run them off their feet. Jockey Flavien Prat will ride him for the first time. 


MASTER PIECE (4-1) from the eighth slot is interesting. He has delivered solid efforts in all three of his U.S. starts, and exits a run-in with the above-mentioned turf superstar DOMESTIC SPENDING in the Manhattan Stakes (G1). MASTER PIECE finished 6th that day, while at 14-1, but was cut-off in deep stretch when he was really beginning to hit his best stride and maybe would have finished better than sixth. It was a superior effort nevertheless, considering the horses he still finished in front of: CHANNEL CAT and COLONEL LIAM. Plus jockey Joel Rosario is back onboard. He already rode him to victory two races back, and does considerably well with closer-style types.

SERVE THE KING (8-1) completes the Chad Brown triplet. The son of KINGMAN has 1 win and 1 second in three starts at Monmouth Park. He's making his second start off a layoff, but has to take a big step forward to compete with these rivals. He's stretching out to one mile and three-eighths for the first time, but does so under the hot-hands of Paco Lopez, who is vying for the top spot in the jockey standings at Monmouth Park. Note that Paco already scored a win aboard SERVE THE KING back in August 2020. He had to split foes in the stretch to grab the win, and it was over this same track and surface.
