The BC Juvenile Fillies Turf History

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf is a $1 million race that brings together the best 2-year-old female turf horses from North America and overseas for a 1 mile test on the grass course. Initially run as an ungraded stakes race, the event was upgraded to Grade-II in 2010 and then promoted once again to Grade-I in 2012.

The 2014 winner at Santa Anita was a very special filly named Lady Eli, who caught the leader in the stretch and pulled away for a nearly 3-length victory at 5-2 odds. Her final time of 1:33.41 is the fastest ever in the Juvenile Fillies Turf. Trained by Chad Brown and ridden by Irad Ortiz, Jr., Brown has been beaming about Lady Eli since she had her first breeze over the track.

After winning the Belmont Oaks on July 4, 2015 for her sixth win in six starts, Lady Eli contracted the deadly disease laminitis after stepping on a nail following her victory in that race. She not only survived, but miraculously returned to racing nearly 14 months later and was a dominate force again.

Lady Eli returned to the Breeders’ Cup in 2016 and finished 2nd by a nose in the Filly & Mare Turf. She’s won 10 of 13 lifetime starts with three runner-up finishes and nearly $3 million in earnings heading into the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

In 2017, the Juvenile Fillies Turf winner was New Money Honey (6-1), a Kentucky-bred daughter of Medaglia d’ Oro, who gave Chad Brown his 3rd win in the race along with Lady Eli and 2008 winner Maram. The 2016 win was Brown’s 8th Breeders’ Cup victory overall and jockey Javier Castellano’s 7th Breeders’ Cup victory and first in the Juvenile Fillies Turf.

As championship turf races tend to do, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf attracts talent from all over the world. All five of the prep races that offer automatic berths through the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series are hosted in different countries. These include the Moyglare Stud Stakes in Ireland, Natalma Stakes in Canada, Rockefel Stakes in England, Prix Marcel Boussac in France and the Jessamine Stakes in the United States.


Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Historical Records

Three Jockeys share the record for most wins: Javier Castellano (2016 & 2017), Irad Ortiz Jr. (2014 & 2018) and Florent Geroux (2015 & 2020). Trainer Chad Brown has won the race six times clinching the winningest trainer. Brown won the initial Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf in 2008 with Maram, and then repeated the effort with Lady Eli in 2014, New Money Honey in 2016, Rushing Fall in 2017, Newspaperofrecord in 2018 and finally Hard to Justify in 2023.

The current speed record for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf was set by Lady Eli in 2014 when she crossed the wire in a time of 1:33.41. In fact, Lady Eli is one of the most recognized champions of this race.

Stephanie’s Kitten won this race in 2011 and would go on to claim the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf in 2015. She is the only horse to score a double by winning both the Juvnile Fillies and Filly & Mare divisions.
