Breeders&rsquo; Cup has added a race to its official roster, the Juvenile Turf Sprint, and will increase the purse of the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Sprint to $2 million, the organization announced Monday.The Turf Sprint, which has been run as an undercard race during the two&#45;day Breeders&rsquo; Cup event in the past several years, will be run at about 5 1/2 furlongs on the turf and be open to 2&#45;year&#45;olds. The race will have a $1 million purse and now be considered the 14th official Breeders&rsquo; Cup race of the two&#45;day event, which will be held this year at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., on Nov. 2&#45;3.Though no announcement was made as to whether the new race would be held on Friday or Saturday, traditionally the turf races for 2&#45;year&#45;olds are held Friday and the juvenile dirt races are Saturday.Dora Delgado, the Breeders&rsquo; Cup&rsquo;s senior vice president of racing and nominations, said that Breeders&rsquo; Cup decided to add the race because of a history of oversubscribed fields for both the Breeders&rsquo; Cup Juvenile Turf and Breeders&rsquo; Cup Juvenile Turf Fillies, which were added to the official roster in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Fields in those races are limited to 14 horses.&ldquo;Each year, the Juvenile Turf and the Juvenile Fillies Turf are oversubscribed,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;We feel that the Juvenile Turf Sprint will be a popular draw among horsemen from North America and overseas stables and will generate interest among North American racetracks to card races in this division.&rdquo;The $500,000 boost to the Sprint purse restores the race to a $2 million purse. The Sprint had a purse of $2 million from 2006 to 2010, but it was cut to $1.5 million in 2011. Breeders&rsquo; Cup also said that it would add $1 million in purses to undercard events over the two days, and it used that figure to claim that the event&rsquo;s races would now offer more than $30 million in total purses.The announcement of the new race and purse increases came 10 days after Breeders&rsquo; Cup held a board meeting to discuss potential changes to its lineup. Several members of the organization&rsquo;s board have been pressing for changes under the belief that the event should be growing faster, in terms of handle and television ratings. Handle at last year&rsquo;s event was $135.5 million, up 5.7 percent and the highest total since 2013. The increase came in the wake of changes to the tax treatment of parimutuel winnings that were highly beneficial to horseplayers.Breeders&rsquo; Cup officials had previously declined to comment about any changes to the lineup that were approved at the board meeting. The potential changes included moving the event to a date in December and the addition of a Breeders&rsquo; Cup Derby for 3&#45;year&#45;old horses.
