SAN ANTONIO (CBDFW.COM/CBSNEWS.COM) - An $18 bet paid off in a big way for an Austin woman Saturday at Retama Park Race Track in Selma, Texas.
Margaret Reid walked away with a cool $1.2 million when Justify won the Kentucky Derby, reports CBS San Antonio affiliate KENS-TV.
Reid, who has been going to Retama for years with her friends, told the station, "It was an amazing feeling, yes, that you won a really big, like a really big ticket. A mini-lotto if you will."
Reid won a "pick five," in which you have to pick the winner of five races in a row. That fifth race happened to be the Kentucky Derby.
Selma, Texas -- where the Retama Park Race Track is located -- is about 20 miles northeast of San Antonio.
