AUTHENTIC was confirmed as the world’s best three-year-old for 2020 at the Longines Racing Awards, held online for the first time at the National Horseracing Museum in Newmarket this week.

Bob Baffert’s Into Mischief colt sealed the deal with a brilliant performance to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic, earning him a rating of 126, having scooped the Kentucky Derby and Grade 1 Haskell Stakes earlier in the season.
