Therideofalifetime, Pico D’Oro Chasing Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Berth In Saturday’s Iroquois

The Road to the 2021 Kentucky Derby will begin Saturday afternoon when 10 2-year-olds go to the post for the Grade 3 Iroquois Stakes at Churchill Downs.

The Iroquois offers 17 points toward the 2021 Run for the Roses on a 10-4-2-1 scale to the top four finishers, as well as an expenses-paid berth to the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Keeneland in early November.

Topping the entries is Stephen Fidel’s Therideofalifetime, runner-up in the Saratoga Special (GII) in his most recent start. Trained by Ignacio Correas IV, Therideofalifetime will be ridden by Florent Geroux and break from post position 10.

Also figuring to draw support is Sandin Syndicate Stable’s Pico d’Oro.

Trained by Bill Morey, Pico d’Oro won the Ellis Park Juvenile last month in his most recent start that served as his maiden-breaking score. Javier Castellano has the mount and will break from post position seven.

The field for the Iroquois, with riders and weights from the rail out, is: Drop Anchor (Brian Hernandez Jr., 118 pounds), Sittin On Go (Corey Lanerie, 118), Super Stock (Ricardo Santana Jr., 120), Ultimate Badger (Joe Talamo, 118), Dreamer’s Disease (Miguel Mena, 118), Belafonte (Declan Cannon, 118), Pico d’Oro (Castellano, 120), Midnight Bourbon (Gerardo Corrales, 118), Crazy Shot (Edgar Morales, 118) and Therideofalifetime (Geroux, 118).

The Iroquois will go as Race 10 with a post of 4:07 p.m.
