Authentic runs Second in Preakness
It started off slow and wound up being a hell of a race. History was made as Swiss Skydiver edged Authentic in a photo finish to become only the 6th filly to win the Preakness. Hard to be disappointed with such a hard-fought performance. On to the Breeders' Cup Classic November 7!
Authentic wins the 146th Kentucky Derby!!! Congratulations to trainer Bob Baffert on his 6th Derby win, jockey John R. Velazquez on his 3rd Derby win, and my fellow co-owners and MyRacehorse Stable!
Well, like everyone else on the planet, I haven't accomplished a whole lot with the pandemic going on, but I did manage to do my first in-person 5k today, finishing 69th in my age group in the World's Largest Virtual Run, an official Guiness World Record attempt.
Well, my debut as a racehorse owner went well, as Authentic won the Grade I Haskell Invitational Stakes this afternoon at Monmouth Park! This was a win and you're in race, as Authentic has secured a spot in the Breeders' Cup Classic this November.
