Bloodstock Desk: maiden winner of the day.

Newmarket 1.10: Turftours.com Wood Ditton Stakes (1m, 3yo)

United Nations

(c Halling-Congress, by Dancing Brave)

Breeder: Cyril Humphris

Owner: Sheikh Mohammed

Trainer: David Loder

Cyril Humphris bred the top-class mile-and-a-quarter performer Halling, so it is no surprise to see him using the stallion, and he has been rewarded with the promising United Nations. The colt cost 140,000gns as a foal, and his appeal to Sheikh Mohammed was obvious; not only did he race Halling - who is currently in Dubai - but he was also owner-breeder of Congress's sister Cherokee Rose, who gained her most important win in the 1995 Haydock Sprint Cup. Cherokee Rose has bred Bowman (by Irish River), a French Group 3 winner and third behind Landseer in the 2002 Poulains. Congress - who has bred two winners at up to a mile - won over a mile at two, and that looks to be the distance on pedigree for United Nations.
