Kentucky Derby Dream Bet
The Kentucky Derby dream bet winner has only one person to thank this year for his payoff and that is the horse Super Saver and jockey Calvin Borel.
Horse racing fan and enthusiast Glen Fullerton, a resident from Texas, ended up winning the Kentucky Derby Dream Bet.
Fullerton won a Churchill Downs sponsored prize to travel down to the 2010 Kentucky Derby and actually place a $100,000 bet on who he thought would be the Kentucky Derby 2010 winner. Fullerton put his contest money on Super Saver, whose odds were 8-1 second choice.
When Calvin Borel guided Super Saver in for the win, the Kentucky Derby dream bet paid off. The 40-year-old Fullerton raked in $900,000. NBC Sports reports that Fullerton chose Super Saver because of Calvin Borel, who had won two of the last three Derbys.
