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.
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.
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.
