The 148th running of the Kentucky Derby is in the books. It was a massive upset this year with Rich Strike and Jockey Sonny Leon taking home the roses. Rich Strike opened at 30-1 the morning of the race and was largely ignored by the betting masses. At post he was listed at nearly 81 to 1. In fact, if it weren’t for Ethereal Road being scratched from the race, Rich Strike wouldn’t have even been running.

Anytime you have that big of an underdog winning, you are going to have massive payouts for classic derby bets. Here’s a look at this year’s payouts and how they stack up against the history of the Kentucky Derby.

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.
