Dewhurst Stakes Gr. 1

U S Navy Flag led throughout, winning over the Newmarket six furlongs and beating home Mendelssohn (USA) by two and a half lengths. In doing so, U S Navy Flag became the first two-year-old since Diesis in 1982 to win both the Middle Park Stakes and Dewhurst Stakes, while also recording the fastest ever time in the Dewhurst.

July Cup Gr. 1

Beating home race favourite Blue Point (IRE) and multiple Group 1-winning sprinter Redkirk Warrior (GB), U S Navy Flag added the July Cup to his Group 1 scores. In doing so, he completed a Newmarket Group 1 triple crown and carved himself a niche in racing history.

Middle Park Stakes Gr. 1

Flying down the straight course at Newmarket, U S Navy Flag put in a gutsy performance to win the six-furlong feature half a length ahead of Fleet Review, while also upstaging Phoenix Stakes-winning Sioux Nation.
