    Rich Strike struck it rich for all involved with him when he won the 148 the running of the Kentucky Derby on May 7, 2022 as the longest shot in the race at 80 to 1! Rich Strike was born on a prestigious farm called Calumet in Kentucky, but they thought it best for the horse to race him in a claiming race in which they lost him to his current owner for only $30,000! To watch the race will give you goose bumps as his jockey, Sonny Leon, guides Rich Strike from the 20 hole in and out and around traffic of a full field of horses to get up just in time to beat the two co-favorites, Epicenter and Zandon! After the race, when the outrider went to pick up Rich Strike to take him to the winners circle, with the horse’s adrenaline pumping after running the race of his life, he attacked the pony and outrider by biting them! He’s not normally that mean of a horse but what a shocker, all the way around!
