The United States was undoubtedly the class horse is the small Crystal Mile field of six and the horse has stamped himself as a serious chance for the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) at Flemington in a fortnight with this afternoon’s triumph.

Jumping from the gates well, jockey Kerrin McEvoy settled The United States off the pace of Lidari, Federal and Ulmann from the gates, who set only a fair tempo in the Crystal Mile.

McEvoy produced the Galileo entire rounding onto the final straight and was a passenger as the horse comfortably overcame his rivals to secure a seventh career win in the Crystal Mile; beating home Lidari and an impressive Ulmann.

McEvoy produced a typically smart ride aboard The United States to win the Crystal Mile and revealed that it was not all smooth sailing for the classy import this afternoon.

“It was a bit sticky early because he’s not a great beginner,” McEvoy said.

“I just let him get into his stride and I was able to duck down inside Royal Rapture. He’s a big, strong horse and I was able to push him out, get him clear.

“Then it was just a matter of getting him mobile. No problems at the trip and weight-forage. Those other hoses that aren’t as highly-rated had to try and match him and they couldn’t do it.”

Prominent owner Nick Williams was pleased with The United States’ win in the Crystal Mile and conformed that providing he comes through the run well, will next target the 2016 Emirates Stakes (previously known as the Mackinnon Stakes).

“He missed a lot of work heading out of the Turnbull Stakes and we had to re-asses plans,” Williams said.

“All the team at the farm have done a wonderful job. He didn’t have much wrong with him; he probably had a bit of man-flu truth be told.

“I think he’s our best horse. He’s by Galileo who is the best sire in the world and out of a Pivotal mare, who is the best sire in Britain.

“He’s a tough horse and a great horse. All things being equal, it will be onwards to the Emirates Stakes on final day at Flemington, and hoping he can put in a similar performance.”

The United States has returned to racing in career-best form this year, and extended his record to seven wins and five minors through nineteen starts, in being crowned the Crystal Mile winner this afternoon.

    Everything said was actually very reasonable. But, what about this?
    what if you composed a catchier post title? I am not
    suggesting your content isn’t solid., however suppose you added something to maybe get a
    person’s attention? I mean Emirates Stakes Ideal for Crystal Mile Winner The United States – HorseRacing.com.au is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
