Ireland, a full sister to 2009 Hopeful winner Dublin, is set to make her debut Thursday at Churchill Downs.

The daughter of Afleet Alex, out of the Storm Bird mare Classy Mirage, drew the outside post in a field of nine for trainer D. Wayne Lukas and jockey Miguel Mena.

Dublin, also trained by Lukas, broke his maiden at Saratoga in his second start and followed up with a win in the Hopeful Stakes. He was third in the Arkansas Derby, seventh in the Kentucky Derby and fifth in the Preakness Stakes.
