A woman scooped a whopping $1.2 million on an $18 bet on races at the Kentucky Derby day after picking five consecutive winners. Now, after winning the Kentucky Derby, Baffert is more confident in comparing the horses. "Obviously. I have a young daughter that's going to be going to college in three years, so some of it will go there", Reid said.
The win earns Gunther's team $1.24 million and leaves Justify as the only horse with a chance to win the elusive triple crown this year. Justify's group reportedly made $1.four million.
But what about Good Magic, which finished 2 1/2 lengths behind Justify in second place on Saturday?
Good Magic, 2017 Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, was worth $9.20 to place and $6.60 to show.
Good Magic - last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor - was the only horse to have a serious shot at Justify turning for home.
Justify beat out a talented field of 20 horses to win the 144th Kentucky Derby.
If all the office "pick-a-number" pools could be added in, the Kentucky Derby would be one of the largest per capita betting operations in the world.
"My job was just to get him out of there", he said. "I saw the splits and how fast they were, but he was doing it easy".

Coachella promoters cancel festival led by Janet Jackson
One of the most F.O.M.O inducing festivals that takes place each year, FYF Fest has today been axed for it's 2018 instalment. The news was announced with a message on the festival's official Twitter account.
Justify is trained by Bob Baffert, who now has five Derby wins. He looks good, but I just have to observe him.
"The win today is equivalent to a gold medal in the Olympics", said Teo Ah Khing, the Harvard-educated architect who runs the China Horse Club. "This track really had me anxious".
That is, until Justify took the lead in the final turn.
Baffert plans to leave Justify at Churchill Downs until shipping the chestnut colt to Pimlico likely the Wednesday of race week. "My vocabulary can't describe how special this horse is. We've just got to go from there".
Skipping the Preakness after the Kentucky Derby is hardly rare, as trainers often are hesitant to send their horses out only two weeks after a major race or have plans to point them toward other races down the line. Justify's win was the safest, with a track record of 3-1. When the horses came to him, he wanted to take off again. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet. The Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, is June 9 at Belmont Park. Previous to the race, the company tweeted that rainfall totals in Louisville stood at 2.83 inches.
