To most people this is two blokes sitting on a chair in the park... to us, they are two of the best blokes you will meet. B. Wayne Hughes and John Hawkes.
In the orange and purple silks of B. Wayne Hughes, star colt Authentic delivered a huge boost to the global Spendthrift operation, when dominating the G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland.

The final time of 1:59.19 established a new Keeneland track record for 2000m, besting American Pharoah’s final clocking of 2:00.07 in his Classic victory five years earlier.

He also set a hot pace in the Kentucky Derby, clocking the quickest time for the race in 19 years. He stopped the clock at 2:00.61, several seconds faster than American Pharoah’s 2:03.02 in 2015 and Justify’s 2:04.20 in 2018.
