The BC Filly & Mare Sprint History

The Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint is run around one turn at 7 furlongs (about 1,500 yards) for the fastest females in the world, three-years-old and up. The race has a $1 million purse and was run for the first time in 2007 at Monmouth Park during the first day of the expanded Breeders’ Cup. The 2007 race was held at a distance of 6 furlongs instead of the normal distance of 7 furlongs because of the configuration of the dirt track at Monmouth Park.  

The 6-year-old Maryfield is the oldest winner and she won the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at 6 furlongs. In 2008, Ventura came from the back of the pack along the backstretch to storm home a winner by 4-lengths. She set the Filly & Mare Sprint record for 7 furlongs for a time of 1:19.90 at Santa Anita. The late Garrett Gomez was the rider for the late trainer Bobby Frankel and owner Juddmonte Farms. Ventura and Gomez returned the next year to finish 2nd as the favorite in the 2009 BC Filly & Mare Sprint.

Groupie Doll is the only two-time winner in 2012 and 2013 with jockey Rajiv Maragh riding both times for trainer ‘Buff’ Bradley.

More than any other Breeders’ Cup race, post time favorites have fared the best in the Filly & Mare Sprint. The average payoff in 10 runnings of the BC Filly & Mare Sprint is $13.39. The average field size has been 12.

Wavell Avenue won the 2015 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint with jockey Joel Rosario’s strong stretch run to reel in the leader late for trainer Chad Brown. Wavell Avenue and Rosario returned in 2016 and finished 2nd behind Finest City, who dug in tenaciously to hold off Wavell Avenue.
