Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Race History

After serving as an undercard race, 2018 featured the debut of the Juvenile Turf Sprint as part of the Championship Series. Breeders' Cup officials felt that promoting the race was inevitable: "The upgrade of the Juvenile Turf Sprint is in response to the increasing popularity of turf racing in North America and will fill a need for international turf sprint sires,” said Dora Delgado, Breeders’ Cup Senior Vice President of Racing and Nominations. “Each year, the Juvenile Turf and the Juvenile Fillies Turf are oversubscribed at the Championships. We feel that Juvenile Turf Sprint will also be a popular draw among horsemen from North America and overseas stables and will generate interest among North American racetracks to card races in this division.”

The race was run at 5.5 furlongs in 2018 and 5 furlongs in 2019. In both years it has featured a purse of $1 million dollars.
