Breeders’ Cup Classic Historical Records
In the Classic, three horses have set track records. The quickest time ever at both the track and the BC Classic was set by Ghostzapper at Lone Star Park when he ran in at 1:59.02. The winning time of 2:00.17 by American Pharoah in 2015 also set a track record at Keeneland. Finally, Alphabet Soup set a record at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Canada with timing of 2:01.00.
Tiznow is the sole winner of the event twice, in 2000 and 2001.
In 2009, Zenyatta became the Breeders’ Cup Classic’s only female champion. The race has only been won many times by one ownership. The Stronach Group, which ran Awesome Again in 1998 and Ghostzapper in 2004, deserves to get this accolade.
With five victories each, Chris McCarron and Jerry Bailey are the most successful riders at the Breeders’ Cup Classic. The BC Classic is currently being ruled by Bob Baffert, who has won the last three editions with the three-year-old winners Arrogate (2016), American Pharoah (2015), and Bayern (2014).
The biggest margin of victory belongs to American Pharoah, who defeated Effinex at Santa Anita in 2015 by a 6 ½ length margin. Monomoy Girl won in 2020, making her the fourth after winning in 2018. She was ridden to victory by jockey Mike Smith, who has ridden a record five Distaff winners. The race has been won a record five times by trainer Bill Mott.
