Run over a one-turn mile on opening day of the Churchill fall season,
the G3 Iroquois is for 2-year-olds who are A) not quite good enough at
this stage of their young careers to test the Breeders' Cup waters or
B) avoiding Santa Anita's synthetic surface in order to race over
conventional dirt. A full field of 12 has been entered, but only three
have been tested over at least a mile of ground.
