Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies History

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

Established in 1984, the race is a perfect stepping stone to bigger and better races later on in a fillies career and with a massive purse of two million dollars on offer it is a very attractive race for trainers and owners.

Since its inauguration this contest has been run on the dirt offering a completely surface to the Juvenile Fillies Turf and usually you will see the dirt specialist take their chance in this contest rather going for the grass alternative.

Following the inception of the Breeders Cup Challenge, there are now a few automatic qualification races that allow the winners of a specified race to gain an entry in to the Juvenile Fillies.

The races that offer an instant invitation include the Oak Leaf Stakes from Santa Anita, the Darley Alcibiades Stakes from Keeneland and the Frizette Stakes from Belmont Park.

Both Indian Blessing in 2007 and Stardom Bound in 2008 won one of the aforementioned qualification races before going on to win the Juvenile Fillies at the Breeders' Cup extravaganza.
