The 144th running of the Kentucky Derby is in the books. Justify lived up to the hype as one of the odds-on favorites, taking command and finishing strong on the sloppy track.  Final winning time was clocked at 2:04:20.

Typically this is a race where you want to look for some long shots to sneak into the top four. That wasn’t  the case this year. Let’s take a look at the results and how much it paid for a winning ticket!

Now the focus turns to the Preakness Stakes, where Justify will look to continue a run at the Triple Crown.

Historical Kentucky Derby Payouts & Money Won for Past Winners

There is payout data going all the way back to 1908 for the Derby.  Below you will find the approximate final odds and corresponding payoff results for each winning ticket.  Exactas were’t tracked until 1985, trifectas in 1995, and superfectas until 1996, so there is no reliable data on those bet types prior to those years.  Closing odds are based on the closet possible fractional odds and may vary slightly from the final odds posted.

Bet winnings for horse racing uses a combination of the odds and the total pool of money on each type of bet to calculate payouts, so rarely will you see similar numbers for every bet type, even when the odds are the same.

*From 1908 to 1910 the minimum wager allowed was $5.  Those payouts reflect that wager amount, as opposed to the modern standard of $2.
