Woman Bets $18 on Kentucky Derby Pick 5, Wins $1.2 Million

She also correctly picked a 40-1 underdog (Funny Duck) in a different race.

Baffert said the three-year-old colt had abundant energy the morning after defeating Good Magic by 2 1/2 lengths to conquer a 20-horse field over 1 1/4 miles on a muddy Churchill Downs track.

Pick 5 or Pick 6 winners can take home large jackpots considering how hard it is to select that many first-place finishers over a string of races.

Promises Fulfilled fell back and Justify was able to hold off Good Magic, who came second, and Bolt d'Oro, who finished in third, for the big victory.

Cybersecurity uncharted territory, risks to get worse: Warren Buffett
Last week, the so-called "Oracle of Omaha" argued that investing in bitcoin is a gamble, not an investment. It actually led Berkshire to a net loss in the quarter, even though operating profit climbed.

Justify was the first colt who didn't race as a 2-year-old to win the Derby since 1882, in what was known as the "Curse of Apollo".

Justify was given a 103 Beyer Speed rating for his 2:04.20 final time over a mile and a quarter. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him. Derby runner-up Good Magic, last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness. I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well. "When we won his second race we were in Pharoah territory".

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

"We certainly feel like he's got a chance to go off in two weeks", owner Elliott Walden said. "That said, his sire came back in two weeks and won the Preakness". Baffert is four for four in winning the Preakness after winning the Derby. Bravazo, sixth in the Derby, might be the top Derby foe to challenge Justify over the shorter distance in Baltimore.
