The Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf is an American Thoroughbred horse race for two-year-old horses, run on a grass course at a distance of one mile. It is part of the Breeders' Cup World Championships, the de facto year-end championship for North American thoroughbred racing. All Breeders' Cups to date have been conducted in the United States, with the exception of the 1996 event in Canada.

The race was run for the first time in 2007 during the first day of the expanded Breeders' Cup at host track, Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. Beginning in 2009, this race will be a Grade II event.[1]

Automatic Births

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 Turf Division there are four automatic births. In 2009, the Win and You're In races are: the Royal Lodge Stakes, a group two race at Ascot, the Pilgrim Stakes, a grade three race at Belmont, the Summer Stakes, a grade three race at Woodbine and the Bourbon Stakes a grade three race at Keeneland.
