THE 1996 BREEDERS’ CUP

Woodbine Racetrack

October 26 & 26, 1996

For the first time, the Breeders’ Cup was held in Canada at historic Woodbine, just outside Toronto. Jenine Sahadi also made history by becoming the first female trainer to win a Breeders’ Cup race when Lit de Justice came from last to first to win the Breeders’ Cup Sprint under Corey Nakatani. It was back to back victories for Nakatani, who next rode the filly Jewel Princess to win the Distaff. In the Classic, Cigar, tried to become the first horse to win the race in consecutive years, but fell short by a half-length, finishing third in his farewell race, behind 20-1 shot Alphabet Soup under Chris McCarron, who bested Preakness Stakes winner Louis Quatorze by a nose.
