Will Gosden Star Shine in Breeders’ Cup 2021?
Trained by John Gosden, who had his first Breeders Cup winner in 1984 when Royal Heroine landed the Breeders’ Cup Mile, Mishriff could smash all sorts of record if successful in this year’s Breeders’ Cup.

What Is the Most Famous Breeders Cup Defeat?
This unwelcome distinction must belong to Dayjur who, despite a wide gate and slow start, had the 1990 Breeders’ Cup Sprint at his mercy. However, spooking at a shadow across the track and attempting to jump it, the horse lost all momentum and had the race stolen away from him by Safely Kept.

Only two horses have won at the Breeders’ Cup on three occasions: Beholder who won the Juvenile Fillies in 2012, followed by the Distaff 2013 and 2016. But the true queen of the Breeders’ Cup is Goldikova who won the Breeders’ Cup Mile in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
What Has Been the Most Impressive Victory?
While Inside Information took the 1995 Breeders’ Cup Distaff by 13-lengths and Street Sense landed the 2006 Juvenile by 10-lengths, many would argue Azari’s stroll to victory in the 1991 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile was the most impressive of all the Breeders’ Cup winning performances.
