The inaugural Breeders' Cup took place in front of 64,254 onlookers at Hollywood Park in Los Angeles on November 10, 1984. The competition for the $3 million jackpot was stacked to the brim, highlighted by the favorite, Slew o'Gold, and Preakness winner Gate Dancer. However, the 31-1 long shot Wild Again, jockeyed by Pat Day, stole the show by setting the pace and sprinting past Slew o'Gold and Gate Dancer on the path to victory. The wire-to-wire finish did cause a bit of controversy -- it took over 10 minutes for the stewards to officially declare Wild Again the victor after an official inquiry.
