The “Wright” Pick – Landover Man Wins $31,311 Racetrax Prize

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

Wright Racetrax 31KJohn Wright made the right pick.  The 56-year-old, who played the numbers 10, 11 and 12 in a $6 trifecta box, won $31,311 on Wednesday playing the Maryland Lottery’s Racetrax monitor game.

John, who works at a produce market, stopped to buy Lottery tickets on his way home from work.  A big fan of horse racing, John said he allows himself one Racetrax game a week.  “You can’t win without trying,” he said.

The lucky winner said he was jumping and screaming when his horses won the race.  He left the store and hurried right to Lottery Headquarters to claim his prize.  “I cannot wait to surprise my wife, Janet,” John said, anxious to share the good news with her when she comes home from work.  “She is very beautiful,” he said of his wife of 35 years.  “And she deserves this very much.”

John said he will use his winnings to make repairs around his house.  The winning ticket was purchased at Ace Food Mart, located at 7501 Landover Road in Landover.
