    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:

    There are quite a few more with one win and one or more near misses. Here is a list of the horses with a win and a 4th place or better finish to go with it. I didn't note the years these occurred in, but if you are interested, you can get the full list of multiple year Breeders' Cup starters here.

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.
