40 Moments #19: Alphabet Soup Wins First Breeders’ Cup Classic Outside United States

Here's Number 19! The 1996 Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), the first Breeders’ Cup held in Canada, was billed as reigning Horse of the Year Cigar’s farewell to racing. But an almost-white 5-year-old with the unlikely name of Alphabet Soup surprised all in attendance at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto―and nationwide audiences in the United States and Canada―with some grit and determination of his own.
