What's unique about the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf is that you basically have to win your way into the field. There are 14 slots open for this race, but 12 of the 14 are going to be taken up by winners of "Win and You're In" races. Of course, several of the races end up being won by the same fillies or mares, and there are always those who win these races and don't end up coming to the Breeders' Cup or run in other Breeders' Cup races, so in actuality, there are more spots open than this. However, if you want to ensure your spot in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, you'd better win one of these 12 races.

This truly is a world championship race if there is such a thing.

Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf Notes

Don't let all of the various times fool you over the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. This race has been contested at a number of different distances over the years, including last year when it was run at 1 3/16 miles for the first (and perhaps the only) time. This really is a grueling test for fillies who aren't used to being asked to run 1 1/4 miles for sure, and the winner of this race is going to be known for sure as one of the best fillies or mares in the world.

Turf horses tend to get better with age, so it isn't surprising that there aren't a lot of three-year old fillies who have won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf. Midday did it in 2009, while Banks Hill did so in 2001. All of the other winners have been at least four years old. For the first time last year, a six-year old won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, as Stephanie's Kitten came away victorious.

Oujia Board is the only horse to win the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf multiple times, and she did it with a gap in the middle, winning in 2004 and 2006.

Jerry Bailey, Kieren Fallon, John Velazquez and Javier Castellano have all won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf twice to tie the record for the most wins by a jockey in this race's history.

Chad Brown is a three-time winning trainer at the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf, including winning it in each of the last two years with Stephanie's Kitten and Dayatthespa.
