This is just wild. A woman in Texas put just $18 down on a Kentucky Derby bet that turned into a staggering $1.24 million in take-home cash (before taxes, of course).

The woman, who chose not to be identified, correctly picked the winners of the final five races on Saturday at Churchill Downs, per ABC News. She laid down the bet at the Retama Park racetrack in Salem, Texas, on Saturday, watching them unfold at the track.

“It’s extremely rare,” Rachel Bagnetto, a spokeswoman for Retama Park, said. “To bet that little amount of money and win $1.2 million is unheard of. In fact, it’s the first time it’s happened at Retama.”

"I didn't know where to go."By the time Baffert and wife Jill made it up the escalator to the Aristides Lounge, they heard the announcers talking about Bolt d'Oro drawing the No. 11 post position and Mendelssohn drawing the 14th.
