With 29 years in the books, you would think that a repeat win by a trainer has happened on more than one occasion. On the contrary, D. Wayne Lukas is still the only one who has scored consecutive victories in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. (1986-1988)
Since, it’s been a rotating door year in and year out. While it may not be surprising due to the unpredictable nature of Juvenile racing, it may be unexpected to some. In particular, the fact that no jockey has been able to score in this division two years in a row since the early 1980’s is astonishing.
As for the 2013 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, unless Todd Pletcher tabs Rosie Napravnik, the only repeat chance will belong to him.
