'Rich Strike' - 80-1 Long Shot - Wins Kentucky Derby
Rich Strike came from behind to pull off one of the biggest surprises in Derby history.
Rich Strike began the derby week as an alternate and wasn’t added to the field until
Friday, when another horse pulled out of the race.
At the half-mile mark, Rich Strike was ahead of only two horses -
he was sitting in 18th place.
As the horses entered the final stretch of the race, Rich Strike was in the middle
of the pack but surged past front-runners and betting favorites Epicenter and Zandon
in the final seconds of the race.
Those who bet $2 to win on Rich Strike got $163.60 in return.
