Horse racing isn’t all derby hats and mint juleps — it’s a seriously impressive sport with a rich history and a thriving betting scene. We crunched the numbers for five of the biggest horse races in the U.S., looking at the winner’s odds every year since 1984 for the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes, Travers Stakes, and the Breeder’s Cup Classic.

With the average winner’s odds being over 9–1, these five major races have had their share of dark horses over the last 40 years. Here’s a look at the winning odds from four decades of horse racing history.
