Sequence out of luck again; US REPORT.

NORTH AMERICA'S turf champion Main Sequence produced another lacklustre display as he was well beaten behind Big Blue Kitten (Chad Brown/Joe Bravo) in the Grade 1 United Nations Stakes at Monmouth Park on Sunday, writes Nicholas Godfrey.

Breeders' Cup Turf winner Main Sequence was having his first start since disappointing on World Cup night at Meydan.

But the six-year-old's trademark late kick was again noticeably absent as he could finish only seventh of nine behind Big Blue Kitten, who was regaining the United Nations title after winning in 2013 for owner Ken Ramsey.

The seven-year-old son of Ramsey's stallion Kitten's Joy came flying late to claim the $500,000 contest from his Browntrained stablemate Slumber. Sent off just shy of a 9-2 chance, Big Blue Kitten was landing the third Grade 1 success of a long career.
