Woman Turns $18 Into $1.2M On Kentucky Derby Bet

A woman places a bet before the 144th

A woman places a bet before the 144th running of the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs on Friday

The woman is taking home around the same amount as Justify's team, who won $1.4 million, according to the Associated Press.

Baffert said the three-year-old colt had abundant energy the morning after defeating Good Magic by 2 1/2 lengths to conquer a 20-horse field over 1 1/4 miles on a muddy Churchill Downs track.

"I'm not thinking about that at all, not yet", he said.

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse". Derby runner-up Good Magic, last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness.

He continued, "He's got that "it" factor, he's just so above average with unbelievable talent and he's got the mind to go with it". "I just basically stayed out the way". American Pharaoh, also trained by Baffert, accomplished the feat, ending a 37-year drought. Of his 19 rivals in the Derby, it appears most will skip the second leg of the Triple Crown in favor of resting and being pointed toward other races.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad Brown said. He'll run in the Preakness and after that, we'll see.

Trainer Todd Pletcher, whose four Derby horses included third-place Audible, gave no indication of Preakness plans.

We'll find out in less than two weeks when the starting gates open at The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans at Pimlico.

Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions of China, and have a certain level of autonomy apart from Beijing. Hong Kong and Macau are former European colonies that are now part of China but run largely autonomously.

"I really thought I was going to get there", Good Magic's jockey, Jose Ortiz, said. "That said, his sire came back in two weeks and won the Preakness".
