2020 Kentucky Derby Results: Authentic beats Tiz the Law, wins 146th Derby

Authentic wins 2020 Kentucky Derby, ends Tiz the Law’s Triple Crown hopes

Authentic denies heavy favorite Tiz the Law a shot at the Triple Crown by outlasting a homestretch battle to win the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

This was the 200th Grade I stakes victory for Authentic’s jockey John Velazquez and his third Kentucky Derby win. His Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert gets his sixth Kentucky Derby win, which ties Ben Jones‘ record for all-time wins by a trainer. He is owned by Spendthrift Farm, Myracehorse.com, Madaket Stables and Starlight Racing.

Tiz the Law was relegated to second and 46-1 Mr. Big News was third.

Thousand Words, Baffert’s other entry, was a late scratch after the horse reared up and fell in the saddling paddock. He quickly got back up on his own and was walked out of the area.
