On a perfect September Derby day, a horse is perfect no more.
The Derby favorite Tiz the Law was defeated Saturday, falling in the stretch to Bob Baffert’s Authentic. Baffert is now tied with Ben Jones for most Derby wins as a trainer with 6. Baffert’s second Derby horse, Thousand Words, was a late scratch after rearing up and falling on its back. Training assistant Jimmy Barnes did suffer a broken arm from the incident.
