Rich Strike made one of the most remarkable come-from-behind victories in the history of the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.

Rich Strike entered the race as an 80-1 favorite to win and is the second-longest shot ever to win the Derby.

As the horses entered the final stretch, Rich Strike put up a furious push on the inside to pass Epicenter and Zandon, who were favored at 4-1 and 6-1, respectively.

A $2 bet on Rich Strike to win pays out $163.60. A $2 exacta bet pays $4,101.2, while a $1 trifecta bet pays $14,870.70 and a $1 superfecta pays out $321.500.10.

Rich Strike will now head to the Preakness Stakes on May 21 for the next race in the Triple Crown.
