The track press release:

Trainer Chad Brown won his fourth consecutive graded stakes and fifth win on the Haskell Stakes undercard to tie a record set by Todd Pletcher when Adhamo defeated stablemate Tribhuvan and eight other top turf runners in the Grade 1, $600,000 United Nations Stakes on Saturday at Monmouth Park.

Pletcher won five races on the 2016 Haskell card but not four straight stakes, as was the case with Brown.

Adhamo, who had been third and second in two previous Grade 1 stakes, finally broke through for his top-level score. The 4-year-old colt owned by Madaket Stables, Michael Dubb and partners, came from off the pace as the 9-5 favorite to run down tiring stablemate Tribhuvan the 2021 winner of the United Nations. The locally-based Epic Bromance, who was sent off at 72-1 and was the longest shot on the tote board was 1½ lengths back in second. Temple took third, another head back.

“He’s been a little unlucky this year.,” Brown said of Adhamo. “He’s still a little bit of a work in progress. I’m still trying to figure out what his best distance is, and ground and such. I was pretty confident going in to today that if he was able to get out in the clear and with a little bit extra ground to work with that he could run down a horse as good as Tribhuvan, and he did. He’s a pretty talented horse. We’re still figuring the horse out. 

“(Jockey) Flavien Prat worked out a beautiful, patient trip. It’s not like he had a fast pace to run into today either, so he earned this win today.”

Prat rode four straight graded stakes winners on the undercard.

Adhamo’s final time for the 1 3/8 miles was 2:12.60 over firm turf. He paid $5.60 for a $2 win bet.
