Texas Woman Scores $1.2 Million with $18 Kentucky Derby Bet
How 'bout taking $18 and turning it into $1.2 million? In our dreams, right?
For one Texas woman, that happened this weekend with the Kentucky Derby according to KLTV.
The woman, who chose not to be identified, placed the bet at Retama Park in Selma, Texas using a "Pick Five" bet.
For this bet, you pick who you think will win the Kentucky Derby plus the four races before it.
Her bet cost her $18, picking two of the five correctly. Funny Duck, with 40-1 odds in one race, and Justify, who had 3-1 odds to win the Kentucky Derby.
She will take home almost as much as the owner of Justify, who won $1.4 million.
We need to find this woman and have her buy our scratch offs.
