Historical Breeders’ Cup Beyers

In a previous post I talked about Why I Like Speed Figures.  There I mentioned that I had a near-complete archive of Beyer Speed Figures for all Breeders’ Cup races to date that I have accumulated over the years.  The DRF’s Beyer Speed Figure database generally goes back to 1992 but they were published before then in The Racing Times and Bloodstock Research before that.  As a numbers guy I’ve always found it interesting to save and review some of these historic figures.  They’re great for perspective and historical context.

So without further adieu here are the Beyer Speed Figures for all the “real” Breeders’ Cup races going back to 1984 – with the exception of a few of the early turf races.  I’ve highlighted the fastest figures.
