One lucky person is now a heck of a lot richer after successfully picking all the winners in the final six races at the 2018 Preakness Stakes on Saturday.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, this person put a $960 bet down and took home $714,000.

As we know, Justify is now one step closer to the elusive Triple Crown after winning a very tough race in the slop and fog at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland.

The person who won this bet also correctly picked Ultra Brat to win the Gallorette Stakes, Switzerland to win the Maryland Sprint, Girls Know Best’s to win the The Very One Stakes, Ax Man to win the Sir Barton, and Iredell to win the final race of the day following Justify’s thrilling Preakness Stakes victory over Good Magic and Bravazo.
That’s quite a haul, though we must say one of the bets on the Kentucky Derby puts this one, and pretty much every other one we’ve seen, to shame.
