An annual series of Grade 1 thoroughbred events, the Breeders' Cup world championship races were first contested in 1984.
Originally a one-day event, in 2007, more racing divisions were added and the Breeders' Cup expanded to two days of competition. The Breeders' Cup consists today of 14 races, with purses ranging from $1 million up to $8 million for the Breeders' Cup Classic.
There are 24 horses that've won multiple Breeders' Cup races.
