History:  The Juvenile was inaugurated in 1984 as part of the original seven-race Breeders’ Cup program, which was intended to serve as a definitive year-end championship event in American horse racing. As such, it is the preeminent dirt race in the country for 2-year-olds and carries double the qualifying points of any other North American Derby prep for juveniles. Despite its stature in the sport and the volume of exceptional winners it has produced, it wasn’t until 2007, when Street Sense won the Kentucky Derby, that a horse captured both the Juvenile and the Derby. In 2017, Nyquist became the second to accomplish the feat. Other notable winners include Arazi, who in 1991 produced one of the most memorable performances in Breeders’ Cup history; Timber Country, the first Juvenile champ to win a Triple Crown race; Unbridled’s Song, who would go on to become a prolific sire following his 1995 triumph; and Favorite Trick, who parlayed his win in 1997 into Horse of the Year honors, becoming the first juvenile to earn the title since Secretariat.

Breeders' Cup:


The Juvenile was inaugurated in 1984, the first year the Breeders’ Cup was held. The race is a Grade 1 event for 2-year-olds worth $2 million and is typically run at 1 1/16 miles on dirt, though the distance can vary depending on the host track. There are currently four ‘Win and You’re In’ races for the Juvenile: the Grade 3 Iroquois at Churchill Downs, the Grade 1 American Pharoah at Santa Anita, the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont and the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland. The most famous renewal of the Juvenile came in 1991, when European invader Arazi unleashed a devastating rally around the far turn to sweep past the field and win by five lengths. In 2007, Street Sense became the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby after winning the Juvenile the prior year. Nyquist would again accomplish the feat in 2016.
