37 Derby ($184.90). Donarail was such a longshot that even his owner refused to bet on him to win! Fifty-five favorites have won the Kentucky Derby, including in the last four years: Orb (2013), California Chrome (2014), American Pharoah (2015) and Nyquist (2016). A lot of people ask, "What type of bet should I make to win the most money?" By betting a superfecta, you'll have to pick the top 4 finishers, in a row, to win the bet. In 2005, the winning superfecta on the Kentucky Derby paid $864,253.40. Cha-ching! Weather Knock on wood, we've been lucky the last couple of years with the weather for the Kentucky Derby. With the average high temperature of 75 degrees on the first Saturday in May, we always expect it to be a perfect day outside. Sometimes, Mother Nature doesn't cooperate. In 1957, the high temp was 47 degrees accompanied by 20 to 25 mph winds, while sleet and snow flurries fell prior to the running of the 1989 Kentucky Derby. In 2012, almost 1.5 inches of rain fell on Derby Day, which was nothing compared to the 2.31 inches of rain that drenched the running of the Kentucky Derby in 1918! e Kentucky Derby is the longest, continuously running sports event in North American history. e numbers above are staggering but will keep growing as the Derby continues to cultivate the world's stage.
