There’s been a bit of an upset in the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby.
Authentic scored an upset win over the presumed favorite Tiz the Law, holding off a late push from the horse which had 4/5 odds entering Saturday’s race. Authentic possessed 9-1 odds, per consensus data.
You can watch the final stretch below:
The win by Authentic earns trainer Bob Baffert his sixth Kentucky Derby winner. Baffert’s six horses to win the Run for the Roses ties him for the record set by Ben A. Jones, who trained from 1938 to 1952, per ESPN’s Stats and Info.
