2022 Kentucky Derby Results

Churchill Downs had over 100,000 fans in attendance watch a stunner take place on Saturday May 7, 2022 as Rich Strike, an 80-1 long shot, captured the 148th Kentucky Derby.

The horse was a late addition to the Kentucky Derby field from the also-eligible list on Friday, taking the place for No. 20 Etheral Road.

Jockey Sonny Leon rallied the horse to run past the 4/1 favorite Epicenter and contender Zandon (6/1) to win the 148th Run for the Roses.

Rich Strike paid $163.60 to win, which was the second-biggest upset in the Derby's 148th year history. The victory for Leon and trainer Eric Reed was their first Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown win.

Reed summed it up best and seemed just as surprised. "Small trainer, small rider, small stable, he should have been 80-1,” Reed said. “And so anybody that’s in this business, lightening can strike.”
