The 2022 Breeders' Cup competition got underway Friday, with the so-called future stars of horse racing taking center stage.

Viewed as the crown jewel of horse racing outside of the Triple Crown, the Breeders' Cup features 14 races that carry $29 million worth of prices.

Here is a look at the first day of action from Del Mar Racetrack in California.

Trainer Aidan Oโ€™Brien got his second win of the weekend in Friday's final race, as Victoria Road narrowly defeated Silver Knott to take home the Juvenile Turf.

By far the day's most thrilling race, most onlookers weren't quiet able to tell which of the two horses claimed the win until the final results were posted. Slow-motion replays of the race showed Victoria Road just edging past Silver Knott by a nose.

Nagirroc finished in third place.
