Bob Baffert’s Authentic leads a field of seven as the 4-5 morning line favorite in the 53rd edition of the $1 million TVG.com Haskell Stakes at Monmouth Park.
Baffert has won the Haskell a record eight times, doing so in 2015 (American Pharoah), 2014 (Bayern), 2012 (Paynter), 2011 (Coil), 2010 (Lookin at Lucky), 2005 (Roman Ruler), 2002 (War Emblem) and 2001 (Point Given).
“The horse is doing great,” Baffert said. “But like all of my horses, they have to get away from the gate cleanly. If he does, he’s a horse who has speed.
