Dam of AUTHENTIC Added to Sunday’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale

FLAWLESS, the dam of today’s Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and Kentucky Derby winner AUTHENTIC, has been supplemented to tomorrow’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale.  Catalogued as Hip 288, she will be consigned by Bridie Harrison, agent for Peter E. Blum Thoroughbreds.

A daughter of MR. GREELEY, FLAWLESS is in foal to INTO MISCHIEF on a February 18 cover carrying a full sibling to AUTHENTIC.

AUTHENTIC has captured 6 of 8 career starts to date at 2 and 3, including three grade 1 wins in 2020 — the Haskell S., the Kentucky Derby, and today’s Breeders’ Cup Classic over one of the deepest fields in the history of the race.  He went gate-to-wire to defeat grade 1 winners IMPROBABLE, GLOBAL CAMPAIGN, MAXIMUM SECURITY, TIZ THE LAW, TOM’S D’ETAT, and HIGHER POWER by 2 1/4 lengths in a track record time of 1:59.19 for the mile-and-a-quarter.  He is a five-time graded stakes winner of $6,191,200.

FLAWLESS hails from a deep female family of top producers, including HOLIDAY RUNNER, the dam or granddam of grade 1 winners SEVENTH STREET, REYNALDOTHEWIZARD, and AMERICAN GAL.

“Flawless is an exciting late addition to our November Sale,” said Fasig-Tipton President Boyd Browning.  “Authentic is just the fourth horse ever to win the Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic in the same year, and she is carrying his full sibling.  To be able to add a mare of Flawless’s qualifications to our sale on the eve of the auction is unprecedented and provides buyers one of the more unique buying opportunities in recent memory.”

The Fasig-Tipton November Sale will be conducted tomorrow, November 8 beginning at 2 pm in Lexington, Kentucky.  Online bidding and phone bidding are available.

The catalogue may be viewed online at fasigtipton.com.
