Derby purse adjusted upward

Email

Smarty Jones picked up an additional $30,000 in purse money on Wednesday when the purse of the Kentucky Derby was adjusted upward.

The purse of Saturday's Derby had originally been incorrectly calculated as $1,154,800, which omitted the $30,000 in entry fees for Wimbledon and St. Averil. Those two horses were scratched the day before the race. The additional money, all going to the winner, increased Smarty Jones's earnings to $6,763,155, still sixth on the all-time list.
