Official 2022 #FoalDerby Contest Page

April 28, 2022




A chance for Authentic breeders to win a grand prize and a chance for Authentic fans to win weekly gifts.


Every week, Authentic breeders submit foal photos to us (we encourage sending at least 3 photos, no videos will be accepted). You can do this by emailing your photo to, messaging it to us on twitter or messaging it to us on Facebook.

Submissions will be due every Wednesday. Any submissions sent after Wednesday will roll over to the next week. We also encourage breeders to continue to resubmit their foals each week, as updated photos through the foals’ growth could make a difference in getting the weekly winning vote and/or into the #FoalDerby.

*Note: If there is a week with a LOT of entries, we may roll a foal over to the next week to allow for more equitable chances to win.

On Wednesdays, we will tweet all submitted photos to the Spendthrift Twitter account and post all photos on the Spendthrift Facebook page for voting.


Your job is to LIKE, RETWEET, or SHARE your favorite foal on Wednesdays & Thursdays – interactions count for a vote, except retweets & shares count for 2 votes.

The 2 foals with the MOST interactions will make it to the weekly finals. On Fridays, we will post the 2 finalists on Twitter & Facebook along with a poll link via SurveyMonkey on this web page for online voting. You will vote for which one is your favorite weekly foal.

The breeder of the weekly winner will receive their choice of an Authentic polo, vest, or windbreaker courtesy of Spendthrift. We will also randomly select 1 voter from Friday’s finals each week to win an official Authentic 2020 Breeders’ Cup Owner cap along with a $100 MyRacehorse gift card. Winners will be contacted the following Monday.

The two weekly finalists will be entered in the #FoalDerby, correlating with this year’s Kentucky Derby.

All 20 finalists will be randomly assigned a post position number and whichever post position wins the 2022 Kentucky Derby will be the winning foal! Spendthrift will award the winning breeders the following:

  • 1st: $20,000 credit towards Authentic’s stud fee for the 2023 breeding season
  • 2nd: $10,000 credit towards Authentic’s stud fee for the 2023 breeding season
  • 3rd: $5,000 credit towards Authentic’s stud fee for the 2023 breeding season

AND Spendthrift will MATCH those winnings and donate to an accredited industry aftercare charity of the breeder’s choice and on the breeder’s behalf!

*Note: If 20 are not entered in this year’s Kentucky Derby, some entrants would be associated with two foals, thus any potential winnings by those entrants would be split evenly. If an Also Eligible (AE) draws in, the foal associated with the scratched horse will transfer to the AE in the order of the scratches and subsequent AEs that drawn in.
