Silverbulletday took command in upper stretch and then held off stablemate Excellent Meeting by a half-length to win the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, the first of five Grade 1 victories in her Hall of Fame career. Silverbulletday, a two-time Eclipse Award winner, provided Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens with his fifth Breeders’ Cup victory and gave Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert his second victory in the Championships.
A winner at eight tracks in her career, Silverbulletday posted five of her 15 career victories at Churchill Downs, where she came back the next spring to win the Kentucky Oaks. Thirteen of her victories came in graded stakes; four of those in Grade 2s and four in Grade 3s. Owned by Mike Pegram, Silverbulletday was inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in 2009.
