Horses race through the Churchill Downs stretch during Kentucky Derby weekend Sept. 4-5. (Annise Montplaisir/America’s Best Racing)

The 2020 Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve and Longines Kentucky Oaks were unforgettable experiences, both for the horsemen and owners who attended in person as well as those watching from home. With summer turning to fall rather than spring to summer, the Twin Spires of Churchill Downs watched over the racing action that lacked none of the excitement of a typical year.

There was still amazing fashion (made more unique paired with masks), goosebump-inducing race finishes, longshot surprises, and Derby-winning joy shared by the multitude of Authentic's owners: Spendthrift, MyRaceHorse Stable, Madaket Stables, and Starlight Racing

The best part? We only have around eight months to wait for the next Kentucky Derby! Check out this slideshow of photos from the Kentucky Oaks and Derby days:
