The Breeders' Cup Juvenile is a Thoroughbred horse race for 2-year-old colts and geldings raced on dirt. It is held annually at a different racetrack in the United States or Canada as part of the Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Distance : 1 mile (1984-1985, 1987); 1 1/16-miles (1986, 1988-2001, 2003 to present); 1 1/8 miles (2002).

In 2006, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) wrote in Part 2 of their special series titled Spiraling To The Breeders' Cup that "Arazi turned in what many still consider to be the single-most spectacular performance in Breeders' Cup history." [1]

Timber Country went on to become the first Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner to win a U.S. Triple Crown race for three-year-olds when he won the 1995 Preakness Stakes. The 2006 winner, Street Sense, became the first to capture the Kentucky Derby.

Automatic Berths

Beginning in 2007, the Breeders' Cup developed "The Breeders' Cup Challenge," a series of races in each division that alloted automatic qualifying bids to winners of defined races. Each of the fourteen divisions has between three and six of these, "Win and You're In," qualifiers. In the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Division there are three automatic births. In 2009, the Win and You're In races are: the Norfolk Stakes, a grade one race at Santa Anita Park, the Champagne Stakes, a grade one race at Belmont Park and the Breeders' Futurity, a grade one race at Keeneland.
