With victories by Drosselmeyer in the Breeders’ Cup Classic and Royal Delta in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic, trainer Bill Mott joined John Shirreffs as the only trainer to win both races in the same Championship weekend. Shirreffs accomplished the feat at Santa Anita in 2009 when Zenyatta won the Classic one day after Life Is Sweet prevailed in the Ladies’ Classic.
 
The all-Mott Classic/Ladies’ Classic Daily Double returned $84.00 while the all-Shirreffs Double in 2009 paid $92.60.
 
Jockey Joseph O’Brien, at 18 years 5 months, 13 days, became the youngest jockey to win a Breeders’ Cup race when prevailing with St Nicholas Abbey for his father, trainer Aidan O’Brien, in the Turf, surpassing Fernando Jara, who won the 2006 Breeders’ Cup Classic with Invasor at 18 years, 10 months, 18 days.
 
The victory by Spendthrift Farm LLC’s Court Vision at longshot odds of 64.80-1 in the Breeders’ Cup Mile provided the second largest win mutuel in the history of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships:
 
Arcangues $269.20 (1993 Classic)
Court Vision $131.60 (2011 Mile)
Spain $113.80 (2000 Distaff)
Lashkari $108.80 (1984 Turf)
One Dreamer $96.20 (1994 Distaff)
 
Four post-time favorites won Breeders’ Cup races this year. The winning favorites were Secret Circle (.40-1 in Juvenile Sprint), My Miss Aurelia (2.10-1 in Juvenile Fillies), Royal Delta (2.20-1 in Ladies’ Classic), and Regally Ready (2.30-1 in Turf Sprint). Of the four winning post-time favorites, just one prevailed on Championship Saturday
 
Juvenile Turf winner Wrote became the first Breeders’ Cup winner sired by 2002 and 2003 Breeders’ Cup Turf winner High Chaparral.
