For the most part, the great American-based fillies and mares of the last few decades were stars who beat the boys in Triple Crown races or major Grade 1 stakes on dirt.

One of the exceptions was Tepin.

The Breeders’ Cup, one of Thoroughbred racing’s most prestigious international events, launches the second season of Cocktails & Conversation today (Thursday, April 1) at 6 p.m. ET via Breeders’ Cup’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.

For many years, the Breeders’ Cup Classic and the Dubai World Cup reigned as the two richest dirt races in the world. Winning both has been the mark of a great horse; only five horses have achieved the feat, and three of them are members of Racing’s Hall of Fame, including the amazing international traveler Invasor.
