Unanimous Consent Looks To Stay Undefeated In Pennine Ridge

Unanimous Consent (GB) wins the Woodhaven S.Coglianese

Trainer Chad Brown sends out undefeated Unanimous Consent (GB) (Almanzor {Fr}) in Saturday's GII Pennine Ridge S. at Belmont Park. After breaking his maiden on debut as a 2-year-old Sept. 11 over one mile on the grass at Monmouth, he returned off a six- month layoff to beat allowance company Feb. 4 over the grass at Tampa. Stepped up into stakes company for the first time, he took Aqueduct's Woodhaven S. when last seen Apr. 23.

Making his first start on turf for Todd Pletcher after exiting the Derby Trail is 'TDN Rising Star' Emmanuel (More Than Ready). An impressive winner of his first two tries in Florida, he  finished fourth, beaten 5 1/4 lengths, after a very wide journey in the GII Fasig-Tipton Fountain of Youth S. He showed speed and tired to third behind Zandon (Upstart) in the GI Toyota Blue Grass S. Apr. 9. Emmanuel is out of a half-sister to MG1SW Hawkbill (Kitten's Joy), who earned over $4.7 million while racing in Europe, as well as Free Drop Billy (Union Rags), who took the GI Claiborne Breeders' Futurity.

Chad Brown's second runner Napoleonic War (War Front) broke his maiden on debut Jan. 21, then caught a troubled trip when fourth in the GIII Kentucky Utilities Transylvania S. Apr. 8. He rebounded with a slim victory against allowance optional claiming company over the Belmont grass May 5.
