The 72nd annual running of the Iroquois Steeplechase last Saturday drew nearly 25,000 spectators to Nashville’s Percy Warner Park. Steeplechase is one of the oldest and most prestigious races in the country, and has raised more than $9 million over the years to benefit specialty programs, equipment, research and other needs for patients and families of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Among those in attendance were, from left, John W. Brock III, M.D., director of Pediatric Urology and surgeon-in-chief for Children’s Hospital, his wife, Lisa Trusler Brock, Susan Gregory and husband, Luke Gregory, chief executive officer of Children’s Hospital.
