Kentucky Derby: Rich Strike Wins In Historic Upset


Rich Strike has come in as the surprise winner of the 2022 Kentucky Derby. The horse’s triumph was historic in nature, coming as the second-biggest upset in the 148-year history of the race.

Rick Strike’s win marked the first at the Kentucky Derby for jockey Sonny Leon and trainer Eric Reed. Epicenter took second place, with Zandon finishing in third. Other competitors this year included Simplification (#4), Mo Donegal (#5), Barber Road (#6), Tawny Port (#7), Smile Happy (#8), Tiz the Bomb (#9), Zozos (#10), Classic Causeway (#11), Taiba (#12), Crown Pride (#13), Happy Jack (#14), Messier (#15), White Abarrio (#16), Charge It (#17), Cyberknife (#18), Pioneer of Medina (#19) and Summer Is Tomorrow (#20).
