The 146th running of the Kentucky Derby is in the books. Authentic held on to defeat the betting favorite Tiz the Law for the win.

Despite a poor break from the No. 18 post position, Authentic was able to regain his footing and take the early lead. Tiz the Law really closed strong and looked like he was on his way to taking the lead before Authentic found another gear and secured the victory.

The big surprise was Mr. Big News, the 50-1 longshot coming in 3rd. A simple $2 wager on Mr. Big News to “show” paid $16.80, which is almost as much as it paid for those who made the same bet on Authentic to win the race (paid $18.80).

Here’s a full look at the results and how much it paid for a winning ticket!

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.
