(Reuters) -Long-shot Rich Strike stormed to victory at the 148th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville on Saturday in one of the biggest upsets in the history of the race. Rich Strike only entered into the 20-horse race when Ethereal Road was scratched on Friday morning. The unlikely victory was the first Kentucky Derby win for trainer and Kentucky native Eric Reed.
