Risk It, a son of Gun Runner, tested the Road to the Kentucky Derby in his previous start where he finished second by 1¾ lengths to West Saratoga in the Iroquois Stakes (G3) on Sept. 16 at Churchill Downs.
The Steve Asmussen trainee made won his debut in mid-August at Saratoga in a six-furlong maiden special weight contest, scoring by 4 ½ lengths as the 8-5 favorite.
In the Iroquois, Risk It finished a neck in front of third-place finisher Liberal Arts, who returned to win the Street Sense Stakes on opening day of the Churchill Downs Fall Meet.
Risk It will be ridden in the Kentucky Jockey Club by Tyler Gaffalione from post No. 8.
Other top entrants in the Kentucky Jockey Club include the Brad Cox-trained Awesome Road, who won a maiden special weight at Ellis Park by 2 ¾ lengths; Champagne Stakes (G1) third-place finisher Dancing Groom; and undefeated Stretch Ride.
