An estimated 1.15 million people will be watching the Kentucky Derby at Louisville’s Churchill Downs on Saturday, including many Kentucky fans who are making the trip for the event.
The odds may be low, but you still should be prepared. If the horse or rider wins, the odds of a re-election or winning outright for that individual in the future are still roughly 50-50.
How to win the Kentucky Derby
If you want to win, you need to know something about the race and the stakes involved. You need to understand what makes the Kentucky Derby different from others.
Why does the Kentucky Derby keep attracting huge crowds?
Most horses don’t win the Kentucky Derby for the same reasons that they are being run. The stakes don’t always equal the numbers running and they are not always a race to the finish. When it comes to the Kentucky Derby, each of the horses is an individual with his own path to glory. To give you an example of the importance of each person in the running of the Kentucky Derby, let’s take a look at how the horses were run for the two previous Derby wins for each of the last nine years.
In 1997, the top three finishers for the Kentucky Derby earned themselves a second, third and fifth in total finishers at the Kentucky Derby (19, 15, and 14). The top four finishers at the Belmont in 2003 earned themselves a second, third and fourth at the Kentucky Derby as their odds of winning it increased. The top three finishers at the Preakness in 2011 won three times more prize money than their odds of winning the Derby at that time.
Here are the two top three finishers, respectively, for the last three Derby victories: Billy Corben in 1998 (3rd) and Billy Corben in 2000 (4th).

What’s the most important rule for winning the Kentucky Derby?
The first rule is to know that the odds are always more favorable for a horse that’s being run and can run with a higher level of skill than the horse they are trying to beat. The most important rule is to know who’s the top five finisher and not who’s going to the Preakness.
