BREEDERS’ Cup 2020 was quite marvellous from an Irish breeding perspective. Wins for Tarnawa, Order Of Australia and Aunt Pearl put the Irish sector centre stage over the two days, and an Irish 1-2-3-4 in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf was an incredible achievement.

The juvenile Grade 1 races are run on the Friday of Breeders’ Cup weekend and may sometimes be overshadowed by the following day’s racing. The two-year-old winners are the stars of tomorrow and the four Grade 1 winning juveniles this year could well be an exceptional group.
