Retama Park Race Track, that will be located in Salem, Texas, published a picture of the victor in its own Facebook webpage.

Watching events on a screen at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky, some 1,100 miles away, she managed to pick the victor of the Kentucky Derby and all four races leading up to the main event.

The $18 bet earned the woman $1.2 million after the favorite horse, Justify, who had 3-1 odds, rode to victory in the Derby. "In fact, it's the first time it's happened at Retama".

Justify's group reportedly made $1.four million.

Reid's "Pick 5" streak started when Limousine Liberal won the Churchill Downs Stakes in the eighth race in Louisville.

According to Hutchinson and Osborne, Funny Duck (39-1) was the biggest individual long shot among the five horses the woman correctly picked. Her selection in the 11th race was 9-1 longshot Yoshida, who beat out favorite Beach Patrol by a nose in the Old Forester Turf Classic.

A Texas girl received $1.2 million on an $18 "Decide 5" wager that included Kentucky Derby winnner Justify.
