2018 Kentucky Derby: 10 Fast Facts

from Brodbeck Porter Insurance Agency

May 4, 2018

  1. 19 winners names began with the letter “S.”
  2. Only three horses raced in 1892.
  3. 120,000 mint juleps are consumed at the track.
  4. There will be 80,000 people in the infield alone…enough to make Churchill Downs Kentucky’s third largest city for one day.
  5. 40 fillies have raced in the Kentucky Derby…three have won.
  6. Nine gelding winners lost out on a big stud fee payday…most recently Mine That Bird and Funny Cide.
  7. No winner ever emerged from post 17.
  8. The fastest Kentucky Derby time was Secretariat in 1973. Secretariat also holds the fastest time for the Preakness and Belmont.
  9. 36% of post time favorites have won since 1908…but 5 of the last 5.
  10. In 2005 Giacomo won at 50-1 leading to the largest Kentucky Derby superfecta (pick top 4) payout ever…$864,000 paid on a $1 bet!

Good luck all, have fun and enjoy the race!
