THE 2007 BREEDERS’ CUP

Monmouth Park

October 26 & 27, 2007

A new era began in 2007 as the Breeders’ Cup World Championships expanded to a two-day event, and for the first time was held at Monmouth Park on the shores of New Jersey. Three new races were added to the Breeders’ Cup: the Juvenile Turf, the Dirt Mile and the Filly & Mare Sprint, which was the first race on Breeders’ Cup Friday, and was won by Maryfield in a driving rainstorm. On Saturday, trainer Bob Baffert won two races, the Juvenile Fillies with Indian Blessing and the Sprint with Midnight Lute. In the Classic, Preakness winner Curlin was no match for his eight rivals, powering to 4 ½ length victory over Hard Spun, with Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense finishing fourth. Curlin was later voted Horse of the Year.
