The Breeders' Cup Turf is a Grade 1 race run under Weight For Age conditions for three year olds and up conducted by the Breeders' Cup Limited.
In 2019 the races were run at Santa Anita Park.
The Breeders' Cup Turf is run over a mile and a half (2414m) on turf. It was first run in 1984 and won by Lashkari.
The concept of the Breeders' Cup was inaugurated in 1984. It was an idea based around being a so-called World Championships and is moved around leading American race tracks on a rotational basis.
The Breeders' Cup has been held at many tracks since its inception in 1984. Hollywood Park, Aqueduct, Santa Anita Park, Churchill Downs, Gulfstream Park, Belmont Park, Woodbine, Arlington Park, Lone Star Park, Monmouth Park, Keeneland and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club have all held the meeting.
The Breeders' Cup Turf, like the other international features, is designed to see mainly the Europeans take on the locals.
The issue of running on the anti-bleeding medication Lasix is always a factor. This race sees most European success.
The race record is held by Little Mike at Santa Anita Park at 2:22.83.
Races around the world that gain a horse automatic entry include the  Gran Premio 25 de Mayo (Argentina), the  Grande Prêmio Brasil (Brazil), the  Takarazuka Kinen (Japan), the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes (England), the  Arlington Million (USA), the  Juddmonte International (England), the  Del Mar Handicap (USA), the  Sword Dancer Invitational (USA), the  Grosser Preis von Baden (Germany), the  Irish Champion Stakes (Ireland) or the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (USA).
