The race dates back to 1941, and has been held annually, except in 1945, due to World War II. The Iroquois itself is the culmination of a card of races which usually includes five-seven preliminary races, both flat races and steeplechases. The race is named for Iroquois, the first American-bred Thoroughbred to win the prestigious British Epsom Derby. The race is three miles long, over national fences and for four-year-olds and over.
