The BC Turf Sprint History

The Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint combines both speed and agility for international competitors at 5 furlongs on the turf course. The world’s fasted Thoroughbreds compete for a $1 million purse, and the race is for horses three-years of age and older. As the sprinters hit the stretch, speeds nearing 40 miles per hours are reached.

The phrase “horses for courses” takes on an even deeper meaning in the Turf Sprint, as the distance of the race is based on the host location. California-based horses have excelled when the race takes place at Santa Anita, as Desert Code (2008), California Flag (2009) and two-time winner Mizdirection (2012, 2013) all were victorious in the Turf Sprint at “The Great Race Place” Santa Anita. California Flag competed in each of the first five Turf Sprints starting in 2008. California Flag was voted the Cal-bred champion turf horse of 2010 and named the state’s Horse of the Year.

Five editions of the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint have been run at 5 furlongs (2010, 2011, 2017, 2019 and 2021). The 2015, 2018, 2020 and 2022 editions were contested at 5 ½ furlongs, and six others have been run at the distance of 6 ½ furlongs. The 5 furlong winning times have been 56.53, 56:48, 56:12, 54:83 and 54:75 seconds respectively.

The 2016 Turf Sprint was another exciting race, as Irish-bred winner and race favorite Obviously (7-2 odds) went forward to the front and jockey Flavien Prat continued to fly down the hill at Santa Anita. As they crossed the main dirt and turned for home on the turf, Om was well behind and near the back of the pack before exploding like a rocket in the deep stretch, coming up a nose short to the winner Obviously, with Pure Sensation holding for third.

Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint Historical Records:

In the history of the race, two horses have won the race twice: Stormy Liberal (2017, 2018) and Misdirection (2012, 2013). Jockey Mike Smith rode Mizdirection to both her wins, while Joel Rosario captured wins in the 2014 and 2017 editions to allow them to share the record for most wins by a jockey. Trainer Peter Miller holds the record for most wins by a trainer with 3 (2017, 2018, 2019)
