WATCH Authentic was a $350,000 purchase as a yearling at the 2018 Keen eland September Sale. His earnings now exceed $1 million after a victory in today's Haskell Invitational (G1), on top of the San Felipe S. (G2) and Sham S. (G3).

Thank you 2617 consigned by Van Meter Gentry sales agent Take Charge. On Saturday, Authentic, a 3-year-old, won the Classic by 2¼ lengths, running against older horses.

“Ultimately, we just felt there wasn’t a lot more to accomplish for a Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, so we have made the decision to retire Authentic to stand alongside his champion sire Into Mischief,” said Ned Coffey, general manager at Spendthrift. Horse racing often retires its stars young because of the money that is available through stud fees.

Authentic, who was bought as a yearling for $350,000, had a different ownership structure whereby Spendthrift was the majority owner and made all the decisions. Buehler attended the Breeders’ Cup as an owner, albeit a small one, this past weekend at Keen eland Race Course in Lexington, Ky.

So marveled the New York Post after Peter E. Blum’s homered filly Flawless looked just that in her scintillating career debut at Belmont Park on May 23, 2010. Unfortunately, she sustained an injury next time out and never raced again, but her story of untapped potential is being fulfilled through her son, Kentucky Derby (G1) contender Authentic.

Blum named Flawless when she was a yearling, a clever synthesis drawn from her dam, Oyster Baby, and her beauty comparable to a pearl. (Eventually, Dixie Holiday would turn out to be the ancestress of such Group/Grade 1 winners as Dubai sprint legend Reynaldothewizard and Go dolphin’s Seventh Street).

But Oyster Baby also passed the eye test when assessed by his longtime associates, Homeland Farm’s Gerry Digger and Bridge Harrison. Involved in the purchase and reselling of 2016 champion Nyquist as a youngster, Digger also bred 2017 Derby hero Always Dreaming in partnership.

The daughter of inaugural Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) victor Wild Again made an immediate contribution with Flawless, her first foal, by Mr. Greeley. Offered as a yearling at the 2008 Keen eland September Sale, Flawless did not reach her reserve price when bidding maxed out at $285,000.

As Albee Johnson observed in his Belmont Notebook” on Brisnet.com, the “homered filly from the small but quality Peter Blum operation…had been rumored to be a runner ever since shipping here from Payson Park where she was prepared by trainer Bill Mott this past winter.” Dispatched as the 1.10-1 favorite in a 7-furlong maiden that spring day at Belmont, Flawless made the preface buzz look like an understatement.

Hall of Fame jockey Kent Devereaux had an armchair ride as she flashed speed, toyed with her rivals by letting them approach, then kicked away in hand. In keeping with Mott’s conservative method, however, the plan was for her to progress through the allowance ranks and gain beneficial experience first.

SF Bloodstock and Starlight West, two of the interests involved in that year’s Triple Crown champion Justify, combined to buy Authentic for $350,000. Like Justify, he was ultimately bound for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Affect’s barn.

For his early lessons, Authentic was sent to the Ocala academy of Eddie Woods, who’s taught the likes of 2008 Derby and Preakness (G1) champion Big Brown and turf star Lady Eli, among others. “He was always a really nice, quiet colt who showed a lot of talent from the first time that we worked him,” Woods recalled.

As a young colt with ability if not quite the finished article, Authentic hinted of significant potential once he did fill into his frame. Spendthrift Farm, the home of his leading sire Into Mischief, has acquired a majority interest, so he too will stand at stud there in time.

When prevailing in his final stepping stone to the Derby, the July 18 Haskell (G1), Authentic was capping a banner day for Blum. Another Blum-bred, Crystal Ball, came within a head of taking the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) at Saratoga the same afternoon.
