    A California Lottery “Daily Derby” ticket sold in San Diego has just won more than a half-million dollars for one lucky horse racing enthusiast.

    California Lottery officials say horse racing fan Gerald Ashby recently bought a winning Daily Derby ticket worth $558,066 at the APRO service station located at 6839 Imperial Ave.

    Ashby picked the following horses for the win: “Eureka” (1st place), “Gorgeous George” (2nd place) and “Whirl Win (3rd place). He chose the Quick Pick option for the winning race time, 1:48.46, according to lottery officials.

    Ashby happily claimed his winnings and says he plans on using the money to help his family.

    He’s also going to splurge on some transportation – but not the four-legged, race horse kind. Ashby says he would like to buy himself a new car with some of his prize money.
