2022 Kentucky Derby: Here's how much you would’ve made with a $1 superfecta

“The most exciting two minutes in sports” certainly lived up to its name on Saturday, as longshot Rich Strike captured the 148th Kentucky Derby with an incredible push at the end.

Rich Strike entered the Derby with the worst odds in the group at 80-1, but came away victorious in what was one of the biggest upsets in the history of the race. Only Donerail (91.5-1) in 1913 won with lower odds entering the event.

Anyone who had the foresight to place a bet on Rich Strike to win has certainly struck rich, but what if you were brilliant (insane?) enough to correctly place a $1 superfecta bet?

To win a superfecta bet, one must correctly predict not just the winner of the Derby, but also the second, third and fourth place finishers. This year, that was Epicenter (4-1), Zandon (6-1) and Simplification (35-1), respectively.

Getting all of those right, which would have been a truly unbelievable feat, would have netted a rightfully unbelievable payout. With just a $1 bet, you would win $321,500.10.

Sheesh.

Given Rich Strike’s unlikely odds to win, it seems fair to assume that there were very few (if any) people who won this superfecta bet. But at the same time, if someone did make that bet, they likely put more than $1 up.

Bottom line: Someone may have had a really good day on Saturday—aside from Rich Strike’s team.
