Texas Woman Win 1.2 Million Dollars At The Kentucky Derby Off $18 Bet
Lady Luck has struck at the Kentucky Derby......literally!
The yearly event has come and gone, but before the dust finally settled a Texas woman won $1.2 million on a $18 Kentucky Derby bet on Saturday (May 5th) which has the everybody talking!
From ABC News, the Austin woman who didn't want to be notified won on a "Pick 5" bet in which she chose the first four race winners correctly and the Kentucky Derby Winner which was "Justify".
She made her wager at Retama Park racetrack in Selma, Texas, where the spokesperson Rachel Begnetto said in a statement:
It’s extremely rare. To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of...
The winner has been going to the Race Track in Selma for years with her friends. She apparently has done some scouting on the races as she carefully placed her bet. Now if I can only be that lucky and correctly guess the Powerball or Mega Millions numbers.
