The Breeders' Cup Juvenile is a Thoroughbred horse race for 2-year-old colts and geldings raced on dirt. It is held annually in early November at a different racetrack in the United States or Canada as part of the Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Distance : 1 mile (1984-1985, 1987); 1 1/16-miles (1986, 1988-2001, 2003 to present); 1 1/8 miles (2002).

In 2006, the National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA) wrote in Part 2 of their special series titled Spiraling To The Breeders' Cup that "Arazi turned in what many still consider to be the single-most spectacular performance in Breeders' Cup history."

Timber Country went on to become the first Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner to win one of the U.S. Triple Crown race for three-year-olds when he won the 1995 Preakness Stakes. The 2006 winner, Street Sense, became the first to capture the Kentucky Derby.

Automatic Berths[edit]

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 ten of these, "Win and You're In," qualifying races.
In the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Division the number of runners are limited to 14 and there are three automatic berths.
The "Win and You're In" races are:
1. the Iroquois Stakes, a Grade 3 race at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky;[1]
2. the FrontRunner Stakes, a Grade 1 race at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California;[1]
3. the Champagne Stakes, a Grade 1 race at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York[1] and
4. the Breeders' Futurity, a Grade 1 race at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky.[1]
