Woman wins $1.2 million on $18 Kentucky Derby bet

Woman wins $1.2 million on $18 Kentucky Derby bet”

Per the report, the $1.24 million won on this bet almost matched what Justify hauled in by winning the Run for the Roses.

Justify was bred in Kentucky by John Gunther of Vancouver. It's as if a win in Baltimore is already assured with what is expected to be a small field that likely won't include any of the top horses that ran at Churchill Downs.

Smith, who won the Derby on Giacomo in 2005, said the victory was due to the horse. "He has got the mind for it". "He was loving this stuff".

Jockey Mike Smith has also raved about Justify's talent, saying he's above average in every area and freakish in his acceleration.

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", Baffert said of the telephone invitation he received from Preakness officials, via the Associated Press. "He never stopped. He may be a super horse". American Pharoah emerged earlier than Justify, reigning as the 2-year-old champion in his class, even though he missed the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in 2014.

Baffert has been continually asked to compare Justify to American Pharoah, who won the Triple Crown three years ago.

But months before the race, one fearless bettor wagered $500 on Justify when he was still unraced, and it wasn't even a certainty that he would participate in the Derby. When I got him out of the stall he was pulling me around.

Clinton Glasscock said he and his father usually spend about $2.5 million to $3 million a year on horses with investments through Starlight.

Justify beat everyone's ass at Churchill Downs this weekend - racking up another Derby victory for Baffert, who many consider the greatest racehorse trainer EVER!

Instilled Regard, an 85-1 shot ridden by Van Dyke, was fourth, followed by 6-1 second choice My Boy Jack, Bravazo and Hofburg. "The race was over for him then".
