Stevestan Stable's French Park and Right Place N Time, dazzling winners in their career debuts at Keeneland, are lukewarm respective favorites in the Pocahontas (gr. III) and Iroquois (gr. III), Saturday's pair of Churchill Downs stakes races for 2-year-olds.
Effectual, with Robby Albarado aboard, took control soon after the opening eighth of a mile and then drew off down the stretch to hold off the late closing Joint Effort in Saturday's $112,600 Debutante (gr. III) for 2-year-old fillies at Churchill Downs.
