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

No rookie Dressed in all black the Parent Trap actor rocked the crowd

An $18 bet paid off big for a Texas woman Saturday.

Justify beat everyone's ass at Churchill Downs this weekend - racking up another Derby victory for Baffert, who many consider the greatest racehorse trainer EVER!

Baffert said he knew he had a "really, really special horse" after Justify won a maiden race California's Santa Anita Park in February.

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.

Huddersfield Hold Champions Man City, Delay Record Bid
Pep Guardiola and his title-winning stars joined over 500 Manchester City staff for a mass celebration on Sunday night. In the second half we were pressured.

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", Baffert said of the telephone invitation he received from Preakness officials, via the Associated Press.

Good Magic's sire, Curlin, won the Preakness in 2007 after finishing third at the Kentucky Derby.

Good Magic, who ran a good but futile second, is on the fence for the Preakness. To win, she had to select the winners of five consecutive races.

The victory was worth $1,432,000 and increased Justify's earnings to $2,098,000 with an unblemished record of four wins in four starts.

Scattered storms Saturday, cloudy but dry Sunday
The warm sector can have severe storms, but moving through in the morning makes widespread severe weather unlikely right now. Scattered showers will be around Saturday afternoon and evening, with the highest chance of rain near Interstate 81.

"When I came out of the stall, he was pulling me", the trainer said. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy".

Smith's silks were almost spotless after he kept 5-2 favorite Justify near the lead throughout the race.

"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad Brown said.

Mendelssohn, the European-trained colt that was a 6-1 favorite, struggled and finished last in the 20-horse field.

Unemployment Rate Drops to 17-Year Low, Economy Adds 164000 Jobs
The participation rate dipped for the second straight month to 62.8% in April, near to levels previously seen in the 1970s. Economists interpreted symmetric to mean policymakers would not be too anxious with inflation overshooting the target .

The day after the Kentucky Derby is usually reserved for talk of a Triple Crown.
