Race Recap/Replay

Trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert and ridden by Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez, Authentic conquered the 1 1/4-mile classic at odds of 8-1 in a gate-to-wire score by 1 1/4 lengths in a final time of 2:00.61 – the fastest since Monarchos’ 1:59.97 in 2001.

It was Authentic’s second straight win following the Haskell Stakes (G1) and improved his overall record to 6-5-1-0, with his lone defeat coming in June’s 1 1/18-mile Santa Anita Derby (G1). The 3-year-old Into Mischief colt has now earned $2,871,200 for co-owners Spendthrift Farm, Madaket Stables, Starlight Racing, and MyRacehorse.com.
