Austin Woman Earns Second Largest Payout In Kentucky Derby History

Posted May 08, 2018

A Texas girl received $1.2 million on an $18 "Decide 5" wager that included Kentucky Derby winnner Justify.

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! This "friend" showed up a few days later with a Derby futures ticket on Justify to win at 300/1 ($500 to win $150,000).

The next race in the Triple Crown series is May 19 - the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said.

"I'll invest some of it, obviously", she said. He looks good, but I just have to observe him. Bovada has Justify at 5-8 odds as the early favorite to win his second race in three weeks. He is so above average; he's got unbelievable talent and he's got a mind to go with it.

Maraud won the American Turf Stakes in the ninth race, and Funny Duck took the Pat Day Mile race after facing 39-1 odds.

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", he said.

Saturday's result, which came in slop that made the race itself more unpredictable, marked the sixth year in a row that the favorite had won the Derby.

The horse, nicknamed "Big Red", came out of the No. 7 post to win the race.

It remains uncertain which horses will line up to try to keep him from that second jewel.

Many on social media congratulated Reid on her win. He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro. But Baffert suggested Justify is one race ahead of Pharoah on the maturation cycle despite the fact he began his racing career so much later. He even went so far as to indicate that Justify ran a better Derby than American Pharoah. Audible, who was foaled in Pine Plains, finished third.
