The Iroquois Steeplechase is an annual equestrian event that has been celebrated in Nashville since 1941. The Iroquois is held in early May, at Percy Warner Park (public) and attracts an annual crowd of around 25,000. The 3-mile-long track was inspired by Marcellus Frost and designed by William DuPont. The most well-known part of this course is Heartbreak Hill, this final and steep upgrade is located on the last turn of the track leading up to the finish line.
