Doctor surprises cancer patient with Kentucky Derby winning…


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WTHR) – A Kentucky woman battling Stage 4 lung cancer hit it big at the Kentucky Derby and didn’t even know it.

The morning of this year’s race, Jeanne Pierce asked her doctor to place a bet on Country House. After a controversial ruling in the race, her horse was a winner.

But Pierce didn’t think her doctor placed the bet until she went in for treatment this week.

Her doctor presented her with her $130 in winnings and a beautiful Kentucky Derby hat, called a “fascinator.”

“Maybe one of these days I’ll go to Churchill Downs for Derby and I’ll wear this,” Pierce told WAVE-TV.

But for now, she plans to save the money or maybe take her mother out to dinner.
