Coady Photography will donate 25% of all sales in December of its 2021 calendar honoring 2020 GI Kentucky Derby and GI Breeders' Cup Classic winner Authentic (Into Mischief) to Old Friends Equine. The calendar is currently on sale for $30 and can be purchased at

“Coady Photography couldn't think of a better cause to support than Thoroughbred retirement and Old Friends,” Kurtis Coady said. “We are excited to help.

The 9″x12” wall calendar features Coady pictures, some never before seen, from both the Sept. 5 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and Nov. 7 Breeders' Cup Classic at Keeneland. Campaigned by Spendthrift Farm LLC, MyRaceHorse Stable, Madaket Stables LLC and Starlight Racing and trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, the colt is only the fourth horse in history to win the Derby and Classic in the same year, following American Pharoah (2015), Unbridled (1990) and Sunday Silence (1989).

“We greatly appreciate this donation from Coady Photography,” Old Friends founder Michael Blowen said. “In this unprecedented year, we have had to look at alternative ways to raise much needed funds and this will be a big help to us. It's especially significant because Bob and Jill Baffert have donated so many great horses such as Game on Dude to Old Friends. And, they've supported us financially since we started more than 15 years ago. I hope all Thoroughbred racing fans will show their support for Old Friends by purchasing a calendar.”
