Heiligbrodt Racing Stable’s homebred Crider ran a good second in the May 8 Lone Star Derby (gr. III) last out, which should set him up well for the $125,000 Northern Dancer Stakes (gr. III) at Churchill Downs June 12.
The Northern Dancer is the third of five graded stakes on the Churchill program headlined by the $600,000 Stephen Foster Handicap (gr. I). The 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-olds is set for a 4:29 p.m. EST post.
