The Race

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf began in 2007. It was held during the first day of the expanded Breeders’ Cup at the Monmouth Park Racetrack in Oceanport, New Jersey. In 2009, the race gained Grade II status and two years later, the American Graded Stakes Committee upgraded the event to Grade I. Five of the entries received automatic berths in “Win and You’re In” races held in racetracks in Ireland, Canada, England, France, and the United States. The first winner of the event is Nownownow and other notable winners include Pounced (2009), Wrote (2011), Outstrip (2013), Line of Duty (2018), and last year’s top-notcher Structor (2019).

In a loaded field, betting odds in horseracing favor Battleground after winning two consecutive races. However, Mutasaabeq and Gretzky the Great are capable enough to launch an attack and could emerge victorious in the process. Cadillac, New Mandate, and Sealiway could pull off longshot wins as well. But in the end, picking Battleground is the safest bet among the runners taking part in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Race.
