A group of horse bettors hit it big on Saturday, thanks to some longshots winning at Gulfstream Park.

Track records show that one person hit the Race 1 superfecta — correctly guessing the first four horses to win — with 70-1 Freddy Soto in front.

Nine tickets hit the Pick 3 of horses with 70-1, 36-1 and 26-1 odds, who won the first three races. The 50 cent ticket paid $14,483.65.

But the big winner was a bettor who hit the winner in the first five races. That 50 cent bet paid out $524,966.50, the fifth-highest payout for a 50 cent wager in U.S. horse racing history, according to Ed DeRosa, director of marketing for Brisnet. It’s also the third-highest payout for a non-jackpot.

Last year, a bettor hit the Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream (first six races). The 20 cent ticket paid $2.2 million. The track record payout was when a bettor hit the Rainbow 6 in 2014. It paid $6.6 million.
