The 145th running of the Kentucky Derby is in the books and it brought with it quite a bit of drama. We had the morning line favorite, Omaha Beach, scratch days before the event.

Improbable went off as the odds on favorite at 4/1 and while he raced well, his fourth place finish snapped a streak of 6 straight Kentucky Derby’s where the favorite won the race.

If you watched the race live, it appeared as though Maximum Security was the winner. That was the case until objections were filed for a swerve that Maximum Security made on the far turn and he was disqualified to 17th place.

That promoted 65 to 1 long shot, Country House into the winner circle, where a simple $2 bet to win paid out $132.40. Code of Honor came in 2nd with Tacitus finishing 3rd.

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.
