A month ago, Authentic was the Kentucky Derby spoiler in a thrilling head-to-head faceoff with Tiz the Law.
Swiss Skydiver gave Authentic a taste of its own medicine Saturday. The filly outlasted Authentic by a neck to take home the 2020 Preakness Stakes, concluding the Triple Crown cycle with three different winners for each race.
Swiss Skydiver is the first filly to win a Triple Crown race since Rachel Alexandria in 2009 and just the 12th in horse racing’s history. Six fillies have won the Preakness, making it the likeliest Triple Crown race to produce a female winner.
