Juvenile Turf Race History

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf was part of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships’ 2007 expansion to a two-day event and lands among the first day race card. The Breeders’ Cup was originally a one day festival. The first two Juvenile Turf races were not graded, but the American Graded Stakes Committee upgraded it to grade-two status in 2009 and then further upgraded the race to grade-one status in 2011.

The Juvenile Turf is a one-mile (or eight-furlong) race, usually ran on a turf surface, left-handed for two-year-olds and features a purse of $1 million. The Juvenile Turf division awards up to five automatic berths each year as part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” prep race series.

The first ever running of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf in 2007 was won by Nownownow.
