A track spokesman told ABC that it is "unheard" of to win $1.2 million on such a small bet. But thanks to an early tip, one bettor was able to lock in Justify at 300/1 odds for $500 back in February, before he had ever run a race. Derby runner-up Good Magic, last year's 2-year-old champion and Breeders' Cup Juvenile victor, appears unlikely to run in the Preakness.

Smith and Justify head to the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness Stakes, on May 19 in Baltimore.

"There's no telling what this horse can do", Smith said.

"I've seen all kinds, I mean this guy, he's just special", Baffert said.

It's not just that Justify, the undefeated champion of the 144th Kentucky Derby on Saturday, wins races, it's how he wins them that has stamped him as a potential super horse and the next great hope for horse racing. Promises Fulfilled went to the lead, but Justify never let him get away.

Facebook also says it will continue to seek answers "to understand exactly what happened and make sure it doesn't happen again". British corporate records show that Nix is also director of a company called Emerdata Ltd. that was incorporated in August 2017.

The three-year-old colt was the favourite heading into the race with odds of 2.9 to 1 to win.

Justify's Derby victory was certainly more commanding, so much so that rival trainers immediately conceded he was the best horse in the aftermath. Good Magic was second, while Audible finished third.

Additionally, she was correct with the winners in the eighth (Limousine Liberal, 4-1), ninth (Maraud, 8-1) and 11th (Yoshida, 10-1) races, the report said.

Starlight Racing, a small syndicate run by Jack Wolf and his wife, Laurie, usually invests in unproven yearlings, not 3-year-olds. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him. The Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, is June 9 at Belmont Park. Quip, who qualified for the Kentucky Derby but whose trainer believed he needed more time, was also scheduled to run in two weeks.
