Texas woman bets $18, wins $1.2 million on Kentucky Derby

Texas woman bets $18, wins $1.2 million on Kentucky Derby

That is, until Justify took the lead in the final turn.

Maraud won the American Turf Stakes in the ninth race, and Funny Duck took the Pat Day Mile race after facing 39-1 odds. "He has got the mind for it".

"Right now I'm thinking just keep him healthy", he said.

Justify was bred in Kentucky by John Gunther of Vancouver.

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert reported early confidence in his colt's chances saying, "I knew we had a chance when he got away clean". "That's the best Kentucky Derby-winning performance that I brought up here". 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.

He thought Justify's win in the Santa Anita Derby was just so-so, unlike his win on Saturday. He finished second by 2 1/2 lengths, just nosing out the late-charging Audible (at 7-1) to earn his runner-up placing. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

Police also argued that the work to review the footage would be too costly and require a significant amount of funds and manpower. Now, we know that wasn't exactly the case as the shooter used bump stock attachments on his semi-automatic rifles.

The sound of at least 30 cameras buzzing and clicking broke the silence of the backstretch as Baffert tried to steady his horse.

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

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.

The race was the wettest in the event's history as more than 2.8 inches of rain fell Saturday.
