$18 Kentucky Derby Bet Pays $1.2 Million

Audible and Good Magic, who both raced in Louisville and finished in the money, are at 5-1 and 6-1 odds, respectively.

Todd Pletcher, who dislikes running his horses again in two weeks, said Audible (third in the Derby), Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy would return to his NY base.

"For a horse to do what he has done he has to be really great", Baffert said. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy".

After a day of steady rain on Churchill Downs, it was Justify who managed to cross the finish line first in the mud. "If he wins the Preakness then we'll see".

Justify brought Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith a second Derby victory.

Justify ran 1¼ miles in 2:04.20. "He's got unbelievable talent and then he's got a mind to go with it".

Justify rolled to victory by 2 1/2 lengths in the 144th, and rainiest, Kentucky Derby on a sloppy track in front of 157,813 - the eighth-largest crowd on the first Saturday in May - at Churchill Downs. "I'll give you 250-1.' He says, 'Come on, Johnny.' I said, 'I'll give you 300-1.' Now he's sitting 300-1 on Justify at a big number".

Chad Brown, trainer of Good Magic, said he was proud of his horse but was unlikely to take another shot at Justify when the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown, is held two weeks from now. The Preakness, as always, will be run on the third Saturday of May.

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse", said Smith, whose other Derby win came in 2005 aboard 50-1 longshot Giacomo. Almost 3 inches fell on the crowd of 157,813 throughout the day.

"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", he said.
