Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf History

The Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf is a Grade II race run over one mile for two-year-old fillies and it makes up part of the Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Established in 2008, this race is a relatively new addition to the Breeders' Cup programme as it looks to give the up-and-coming fillies the chance of big race glory.

Ran at Santa Anita the inaugural running of the event was won by the Chad Brown-trained Maram, who bagged the one million dollar purse. 

Currently restricted to 12 runners the Juvenile Fillies Turf has a number of qualification rounds all round the world with winners of those selected races gaining an automatic invitation to the race.

The five races that currently gain an automatic place in this contest are the Natalma Stakes from Woodbine, Fillies Mile from Ascot, Moyglare Stud Stakes from the Curragh, the Miss Grillo Stakes from Belmont Park and the Jessamine Stakes from Keeneland.

Allowing winners from both UK & Irish events really added a global feel to the contest, but as of 2010 no runner has managed to win both as the Americans have dominated the race.
