Texas Woman’s Kentucky Derby Bet Pays $1.2 Million
The Kentucky Derby paid $1.2 Million dollars to a Texas resident who did the impossible on derby day! She won with a 'Pick 5'. To win the payout on a 'Pick 5' you must correctly select the winning horse for 5 races in a row. The Kentucky Derby was the final race on her card. Her bet? $18 dollars.
The Austin resident who won said she wished to remain anonymous. Some news outlets are listing her name the Monday after the race. We will keep from doing that just in case she really doesn't want distant relatives hounding her for her winnings.
