Photos: Memorable finishes at the Kentucky Derby


Rich Strike gave us another exciting and unexpected Kentucky Derby chapter Saturday, outrunning race favorites Messier and Epicenter down the stretch to pull off the second-biggest upset in the Race for the Roses.

Rich Strike, an 80-1 long shot who only entered the field Friday as a last-minute replacement for Ethereal Road, paid off big—$163.60, $74.20 and $29.40 as the winner over favorite Epicenter, who brought in $7.40 and $5.20 for second, while early favorite Zandon paid $5.60 for show.

With another race in the books, we look back at some of the biggest moments from Churchill Downs as shot by Sports Illustrated:
