THE 2006 BREEDERS’ CUP

Churchill Downs

November 4 & 4, 2006

Total purses leaped from $14 million to $20 million for the 23rd Breeders’ Cup. After a six year hiatus, the event returned to Kentucky and the 2-year-old Street Sense showed he loved Churchill Downs, winning the Juvenile by a widening 10 lengths under jockey Calvin Borel. Ouija Board won her second Filly and Mare Turf crown in three years with Frankie Dettori aboard. Dettori was back in the winner’s circle again following his score on the Irish-bred Red Rocks in the Turf. In the Classic, the Argentine-bred Invasor passed Preakness winner Bernardini in the stretch to win by one length under Fernando Jara, who, at 18, became the youngest jockey to ever win a Breeders’ Cup race. Invasor was later named Horse of the Year. In May of 2007, Street Sense became the first Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion to win the Kentucky Derby.
