Want to cash a big payoff betting the Kentucky Derby? Finding a live longshot capable of finishing on the board is the key.

You don’t necessarily need a winning longshot to enjoy a lucrative payday—a price horse finishing second, third, or even fourth is all it takes. Just check out the 2014 Kentucky Derby, when 37-1 runner-up Commanding Curve crashed an otherwise logical order of finish. Even with California Chrome (5-2), Danza (8-1), and Wicked Strong (6-1) finishing first, third, and fourth, the $2 superfecta returned $15,383.80.

Of course, finding the right Kentucky Derby longshot is easier said than done. With 20 horses in the field, there are plenty of high-priced candidates to consider. Not sure which longshot you should play in the 2020 Kentucky Derby? Never fear! By answering a few simple questions, we can guide you toward the perfect longshot for you.
