Juvenile Turf Sprint:
A five and a half furlong sprint race on turf that was first installed as a Breeders’ Cup race in 2018. It is currently the only BC race that isn’t a Grade I, currently holding a Grade II status.
A one-mile race around the turf that has been contested since 2007. This race is for two-year-olds and has been run since 2017.
One of the original Breeders’ Cup races so this has been run since the inaugural event in 1984. This takes place over one mile and a sixteenth on dirt and is contested by two-year-old filles.
Juvenile Fillies Turf:
This race was added to the BC series in 2008 and was upgraded to a Grade I in 2012. This is a race over a mile for two-year-old fillies.
Another of the original series of Breeders’ Cup Races and the only to appear in both the BC and the Road to the Kentucky Derby. This is aimed at two-year-olds and is raced over one mile and a sixteenth on dirt.
Filly & Mare Sprint:
This race is aimed at both fillies and mares. It is contested over seven furlongs and was added to the line-up in 2007 as part of the expansion of the Breeders’ Cup.
Another race that got upgraded to Grade I status in 2012. This race either goes at five or five and a half furlongs depending on the make-up of the host track.
This is contested over a mile on dirt (unsurprisingly) and was elevated to Grade I status in its first year of eligibility in 2009.
Filly & Fare Turf:
The Filly & Mare Turf is another race that varies in distance depending on host track but is usually held at between one and a quarter miles and a mile and three eighths. This race has been won by European horses in four straight years since 2016.
Seen by many as the premier sprint race of the year, this Grade I event takes place over six furlongs on dirt and was one of the original Breeders’ Cup races.
The Mile takes place on turf and has been part of the Breeders; Cup program since its inception in 1984. Famously it was won by the same horse three years in a row between 2008 and 2010 when Goldikova won.
This is often called the Ladies’ Classic as it attracts plenty of interest from the top female horses around the country. A Grade I race that is contested over one mile and an eighth and its winners is a Who’s Who of top female horses.
At one and a half miles, this is the longest race on the Breeders’ Cup calendar and often pits the best horses from both the USA and Europe.
Undoubtedly the best race in terms of quality on the American Horse Racing calendar. This race takes place over one and a quarter miles on dirt and attracts the best horses due in large part to the substantial prize money on offer, which for 2020 is $7,000,000
