Breaking her maiden in her second start at Churchill Downs, Authenticity ran on placing in multiple allowance races. The Quiet American filly excelled quickly to graded stakes races, placing second in the Rampart Stakes.
Heading back to Churchill the filly couldn't settle for second when she won the grade 2 La Troienne Stakes. She missed the win by a head in her first Grade 1, the Ogden Phipps Handicap, but ran back into first in the Shuvee Handicap. The Grade 1 Personal Ensign Handicap and Zenyatta Handicap put two more second place finishes on the filly's record.
