the Stars of Tomorrow I racing program, which features racing

Churchill Downs officials expect as many as 10 others to challenge the Todd Pletcher-trained Overanalyze in the one-mile Iroquois.
The list of probable starters includes Arlington-Washington Futurity (GIII) winner Pataky Kid (Tom Proctor), Fitz Dixon Jr. Memorial Juvenile champ Heaven’s Runway (Ron Moquett), Agave Cat (John Good), Exploring (Mark Casse), Five Iron (Brian Lynch), Positively (Pat Byrne), Royal Art (Wayne Lukas), Strike the Note (Jay Severs) and Symphony Forty One (David Fawkes).
Hightail (Lukas) is among the pre-entries for the
Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint, but is believed to be under consideration
for the Iroquois as well.
