The horse “Rich Strike” did the improbable Saturday night, winning the 2022 Kentucky Derby, in one of the biggest upsets in Derby history! Rich Strike, wasn’t even supposed to be IN the race, was the first alternate after Ethereal Road scratched out Friday morning. He was in 17th position (out of 20) into the final turn, and the track announcer never even mentioned his name until the final 4 seconds of the race! So, how much did he win his bettors?
A $2 Exacta with second-place finisher Epicenter paid $4,101.20
A $1 Trifecta paid $14,870.70
And the $1 Superfecta paid a cool $321,500.10.
