English Channel returns after the United Nations

Winning jockey John Velazquez said, "On the first jump, I went to grab him so I didn't bother the horse alongside me, and he threw his head up. He was a little uncomfortable after that, so I was trying to get him to see that other horse (Fri Guy) in front of him so that he'd settle down; and once he saw him he was still a little headstrong, but he was back in my hands. Once he relaxed, he was fine the whole way. He's run two monster races back-to-back since returning from Dubai." English Channel is the first back-to-back winner of the United Nations since Sandpit in 1995 and 1996, when the race was run at Atlantic City Race Course.
