Spendthrift Farm, MyRacehorse.com, Starlight Racing and Madaket Stables has come to the final conclusion of AUTHENTIC'S future this morning and have decided to retire the 3-year-ol Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cup Classic winner.
In an Owner Update email, MyRacehorse states that "The decision to reitre a horse of AUTHENTIC'S caliber is never an easy decision, but we are confident that this represents the best interests of MyRacehorse's 5,314 owners and Spendthrift Farm. The ultimate goal in racing is to have a horse that achieves a level of success on the racetrack that affords him the opportunity to stand at a historic stallion farm, with the potential to shape future generations of the breed through his progeny. AUTHENTIC has now earned that, and we as owners, have the rare chance to participate in that journey."
AUTHENTIC will stand at Spendthrift Farm along with his sire INTO MISCHIEF. He will stand for a fee of $75,000.
