Longshot No. 21 Rich Strike won the 148th Kentucky Derby at odds of 80-1, meaning a $10 Win bet returned $818. Finishing second was Twinspires Louisiana Derby winner No. 3 Epicenter (4-1), making the correct exacta a 21-3 combination. A $2 exacta paid $4,101.20.
Coming in third place was Blue Grass Stakes winner No. 10 Zandon, who went off at 6-1 odds. The correct trifecta combination was 21-3-10 and a $0.50 trifecta returned $7,435.35.
Rounding out the top-four finishers was No. 13 Simplification, who went off at 35-1 odds and finished fourth. That meant the correct superfecta combination was 21-3-10-13. A $1 superfecta paid out a whopping $321,500.10.
Rich Strike, who was on the Also Eligible list, made the 20-horse Derby field early Friday when Ethereal Road was scratched. Rattle N Roll, who was on the Also Eligible list with Rich Strike, opted not to enter. That created the opening for Rich Strike to enter the race.
Going off at 80-1 odds at post time, Rich Strike became the second-longest shot win the Derby in its storied history. Donerail won the first leg of horse racing’s Triple Crown at +9145 odds (90.45-1) in the 1913 edition. Louisville resident and jockey Roscoe Goose was aboard.
More recently, Mine That Bird took down the 2009 Derby at 50-1 odds, with a rail-skimming ride from jockey Calvin Borel. In 2005, longshot Giacomo (50-1) triumphed to finish just ahead of 70-1 longshot Closing Argument.
