Hall of Fame Trainer Bob Baffert on Being Knocked Over by Authentic


If you're a frequent listener of the Tim Conway Jr. Show -- and you haven't been living under a rock -- you've surely heard about what many called a 'massive upset' at the 146th Kentucky Derby...

Spoiler alert!!!

Authentic won in a close homestretch battle; beating out the heavily favorited Tiz the Law, which would have completed his Triple Crown.

This was the third Kentucky Derby win for John Velazquez, Authentic's jockey. And the sixth Derby win for Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert.

And tonight, Bob Baffert (who is one of the most successful trainers in the history of horse racing), will be joining the Conway Show!

Baffert recorded his very first win as a trainer with Baffert's Baron at Flagstaff back in 1971... And since then, he's won more races than I have time to list here!

Fun fact: Baffert has also been the leading trainer at meets at Del Mar, Hollywood Park and Santa Anita on more than 25 occasions, including a record 10 times at Santa Anita's winter meeting (and seven consecutive titles at Del Mar from 1997-2003)!

Make sure you're listening to KFI AM 640 TONIGHT at 6 PM to hear from the man himself!

Shortly after Authentic won the 146th running of the Kentucky Derby and after he was presented with the ceremonial roses given to the race's winner, Authentic knocked over his trainer, Bob Baffert, after something startled him. Baffert and Authentic were both reportedly okay after the incident. Bob tells Conway what happened.
