Goldikova is the only 3-time Breeders' Cup winner, and finished third when trying for a fourth win in the Mile in 2011.
The list of horses who have won two Breeders' Cup races over the first 34 runnings isn't very long, although with the event expanded to 13 races now it may grow more quickly now than in the past. Here are those elite horses who have managed to win twice or more:
Beholder - three victories, one in the Juvenile Fillies and two in the Distaff
Goldikova - three victories in the Mile and a 3rd place finish when trying for four

The list of Breeders' Cup winners who have gone on to have winning offspring includes only 19 stallions and 3 mares. There are two families that seem to have good luck with Breeders' Cup winners. Classic winner Unbridled has sired three winners, and his son Unbridled's Song, who won the Juvenile, has sired five winners. Distaff winner Personal Ensign's daughter My Flag, who won the Juvenile Fillies, also has a daughter who won the same race. Below is a list of the winners and their winning offspring. You can view the full list of sires of Breeders' Cup winners here.
