That seems like a long time between wins, but given the field size in the Derby, the expected number of winners (without even accounting for post-time odds) from the rail since Ferdinand’s score isn’t much higher than the actual number. In fact, the Kentucky Derby media guide shows horses from post 1 winning the Derby at a 9-percent clip and finishing in the money 20.2 percent of the time since the race began starting from a gate in 1930.
