Woman wins millions on bet


At the Kentucky derby, one woman won the big bucks, approx 1 million, after turning in just an $18 bet.

Margaret from Austin selected the top 5 horses in the order in which they finished at Retama Park Track in Selma, which is situated just around 20 miles northeast of downtown San Antonio. 

An utter sloppy slip and slid track, the 44th Kentucky Derby, 2018 Run for the Roses, was the wettest it had ever been, with over 2 1/2 inches of rain.

With her $18 "Pick 5" wager, Margaret won $1.2 million, selecting five consecutive winners in Races 8-12 at Churchhill Downs, said the racetrack.

Retama Racing Director, Steve Ross, considered the win the "unicorn of wagers."

It was the biggest payout that Retama Park had ever seen! Luck to another extreme.
