Hopeful Stakes (gr. I) winner takes on brilliant maiden winners Honor Code and Havana in $500,000 headline event for 2-year-olds Oct. 5 at Belmont Park.
A pair of longshots trained by Dale Romans for Donegal Racing swept the exacta in the $171,750 Iroquois Stakes (gr. III) Sept. 7 at Churchill Downs when Cleburne edged a fast-closing Smart Cover by a neck.
Mountaineer Juvenile winner Rise Up is the 120-pound highweight, while promising Ride On Curlin and Tapiture, runner-up to Hopeful (gr. I) winner Strong Mandate last out, are among those slated to run.
