Woman bets $18, wins $1.2 million on Kentucky Derby

"We won the toughest one, the Kentucky Derby", Baffert said.

"I don't think Pharoah really ran his best race (in the Kentucky Derby)", Baffert said.

Because it is so hard to predict five straight winners, Pick 5 bettors usually take home large jackpots. The next challenger up was Good Magic who ranged up on the outside of Justify but was never able to catch him.

Justify is trained by Bob Baffert, who now has five Derby wins.

Australian Day seizes PGA lead at Quail Hollow
Tiger Woods , who shot 3-under 68 to get to 1-under, walked off the course frustrated for the third consecutive day. Day, who won the Farmers Insurance Open in January, said he feels like he's close to the form he had at No. 1.

The fact Justify was still frisky to run after the sixth-fastest opening quarter-mile in Derby history at 22.24 seconds and a muddy race spoke volumes to Baffert in terms of winning style and what the future might bring. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him.

He continued, "He's got that "it" factor, he's just so above average with unbelievable talent and he's got the mind to go with it".

Television ratings for the Kentucky Derby, telecast by NBC Sports, dropped to their lowest level in six years. "I just basically stayed out the way". But he said: "I've never been on a 3-year-old like this". We are looking at our 2nd Triple Crown victor in 3 years, after going 37 years without one. "That said, his sire came back in two weeks and won the Preakness". Trainer Todd Pletcher doesn't like running a horse after just a two-week break, so his four Derby entries - third-place Audible, Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy - probably will not be shipped to Baltimore for the Preakness, which is capped at 14 horses.

"I really thought I was going to get there", Good Magic's jockey, Jose Ortiz, said.
