Authentic Takes Delayed Kentucky Derby

It was not quite the sight we are all used to this year at the Kentucky Derby, but at least we got to see it take place- finally- on Saturday. Typically held in May, this year’s event went down in September, and with it came an upset in the form of Authentic taking home the win.

Tiz the Law, the favorite to win after taking the ‘W’ in the Belmont Stakes, never had a chance here as Authentic led from wire-to-wire, becoming the first horse since 2002 to do so in the Kentucky Derby. Tiz the Law did challenge him down the stretch to a degree, but Authentic never broke and ended up taking home an historic Derby win in this perplexing year.
