Woman celebrates winning $1.2 million on $18 Kentucky Derby bet

"It's extremely rare. To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of". But thanks to an early tip, one bettor was able to lock in Justify at 300/1 odds for $500 back in February, before he had ever run a race. His winning time was a pedestrian 2:04.2, which was most likely a product of the conditions rather than Justify's overall talent.

The next race in the Triple Crown series is May 19 - the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Referring to the rain and the huge field of 20 starters, Smith said, "He was lovin' this stuff".

"It was an unbelievable performance by the victor, on this track, going that fast", Derby trainer Dale Romans said. It was a sigh of relief when I got him out of the gate and I just stayed out of his way.

Justify has only run four races, so it can safely be assumed that the Kentucky Derby was his best one. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well. WinStar, which won its first Derby when Super Saver romped in the slop in 2010, owns the majority of the horse, and its president and chief executive, Elliott Walden, made a decision to name him Justify at the suggestion of an assistant. But he said: "I've never been on a 3-year-old like this". He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro. That fifth race happened to be the Kentucky Derby. Saturday being a wet, muddy day at Churchill Downs made for ideal conditions for long-short horses to come in (sometimes a wet track makes it more likely for long-short horses to finish in the money). Audible, a favorite backed by Amazon's audiobook company of the same name, finished third. "I thought, all right, we're going to see how good this horse is".

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse".

Todd Pletcher, who dislikes running his horses again in two weeks, said Audible (third in the Derby), Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy would return to his NY base. We won the toughest and most important one.
