Kentucky Derby 148

Rich Strike, a horse with 80-1 odds and a last minute entry into the race, won the 148th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, making it one of the biggest upsets and underdog victories in Derby history.

The horse, from trainer Eric Reed and jockey Sonny Leon both in their first Derby wins, was the biggest long shot in Saturday’s Derby as it bested both of the favorites Epicenter and Zandon in the final lengths of the race and a shocking, exciting finale.

You can watch the call from NBC below:

Ahead of Friday, Rich Strike was not even meant to be in the main show but entered when a horse Ethereal Road was scratched. His owner said on Saturday after the victory that he only knew he would be entered 30 seconds before the deadline for submission on Friday.

“I’m gonna pass out, I’m so happy,” Rich Strike’s strainer Eric Reed said. “This is the reason everybody does this.”
