Pataky Kid Blows Out for Iroquois

Two days before Pataky Kid will face nine rivals in Sunday’s 31st running of the Iroquois (GIII) at Churchill Downs, trainer Tom Proctor sent the bay son of Rockport Harbor out for a three-furlong blowout beneath the Twin Spires. 
 
With assistant trainer Lisa Sloan overseeing the move, Pataky Kid was clocked in :36.60 in his second work at Churchill Downs since finishing fourth in the Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (GI) at Keeneland on Oct. 6.
 
“I wanted to let him get over the ground and I heard he worked well,” Proctor said via phone from his barn at Santa Anita while overseeing the training of his Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (GI) hopeful Marketing Mix, winner of last fall’s Mrs. Revere (GII).
 
Pataky Kid, winner of the Arlington-Washington Futurity (GIII) at Arlington Park for owner Swifty Farms Inc., will have an equipment change for the Iroquois.
 
“He ran a little green in the Breeders’ Futurity and we’re going to run him with blinkers this time,” Proctor said. “Hopefully the blinkers correct it.”
 
Pataky Kid, the 4-1 third choice on Mike Battaglia’s morning line for the Iroquois, will break from post three under Joel Rosario.
