Breeders Cup Past Winners

Breeders Cup Past Winners

It is important to look back at previous Breeders Cup winners when assessing which horse to bet on, whatever the race is. If you are a backer of European runners for example it's important to know if horses from Europe have a good record in the race.

Be careful to assess what kind of surface the races are run on as US trained horses will be more used to running on dirt. It's also worth looking at how tight the racetracks are and then whereabouts the winner was drawn.

Most of the Breeders Cup races have been run since the events inception back in 1984 so we've dedicated a page to each and their past winners below:

Breeders Cup Mile | Breeders Cup Turf | Breeders Cup Classic |Breeders Cup Juvenile | Breeders Cup Sprint | Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies | Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Turf | Breeders Cup Ladies Classic.
