Kentucky Derby Results & Payouts
(The Spread) – The 2011 Kentucky Derby is in the books and pre-race long shot Animal Kingdom came away with the victory!
At the start of the week, Animal Kingdom was +3000 on the money line to win the 2011 Kentucky Derby, this according to oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com. After his victory on Saturday, Animal Kingdom paid $43.80 on a $2 wager to win, $19.60 to place and $13.00 to show.
Outside of being a long shot that not many observers pegged to win, what was unique about Animal Kingdom’s win is that it was jockey John Velazquez’s first career Kentucky Derby victory. In fact, he wasn’t even supposed to mount Animal Kingdom on Saturday. He lost his ride on Friday when it was discovered that Uncle Mo would have to be scratched due to a gastrointestinal problem.
Finishing second was Nehro, who was +1000 to win at the start of the day. A $2 wager placed on Nehro to place paid out $8.80, while a wager on him to show paid out $6.40. At one point, it looked like Nehro was going to come away with a victory but Animal Kingdom charged ahead down the stretch.
Mucho Macho Man, a horse that received a ton of attention coming into today (his odds went from +3000 to +700 from Monday to Saturday morning), finished third. A winning $2 wager placed on Mucho Macho Man paid out $7.00.
Other noteworthy wagers were a $2 Exacta on Animal Kingdom and Nehro paid out $329.80, while a $2 Trifecta of Animal Kingdom, Nehro and Mucho Macho man paid out $3,952.40. Finally, a winning $2 superfecta of Animal Kingdom, Nehro, Mucho Macho Man and Shackleford (who lead for most of the race) paid $48,126.00.
The track says that 164,858 people were in attendance at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, which beats the previous record crowd of 163,628 people in 1974. The folks who attended certainly got their moneys worth, because they saw one heck of a race.
