As one of three fillies entered by Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas, Twilight Ridge held off stablemate Family Style by a length to give Lukas his initial Breeders’ Cup victory. Hall of Fame jockey Jorge Velasquez was aboard Twilight Ridge for his first of two Breeders’ Cup victories. Twilight Ridge’s victory gave owner Eugene V. Klein the first of his five Breeders’ Cup winners.

One of four horses bred in Florida to be victorious at the 1985 Championships at Aqueduct, Twilight Ridge won her first start on June 2, 1985 at Belmont Park and four weeks later in her second start won the Astoria Stakes (G3) at Belmont. Twilight Ridge closed her career with an allowance victory at Santa Anita on March 6, 1987.
