Racetrax cements its place as her favorite Lottery game
She’s a daily Racetrax player, a retired health department official told Lottery officials on Thursday, only days after her most recent five-figure win. And while the Severn woman doesn’t win every day, the frequency with which the simulated horse-racing game rewards her affection is noteworthy.
“I have several number combinations that I play regularly,” she explained. “But every once in a while, something tells me to play different numbers.”
The 58-year-old sees these messages as being of divine origin. The inspiration for the Superfecta wager that produced her $36,491 Racetrax win came to her in this unusual fashion, she said, and it’s not the first time. “I’ve learned to listen to this voice.”
The mother of three placed a $1 Superfecta bet for 20 races on the 11, 2, 9 and 8 horses to finish in that order and they did! The probability was 54,792.42 to 1.
“I won $33,000 just last year, playing numbers that I never had before and never would have without them just appearing in my head. I thanked God then and I do now.” The Racetrax fan loves the game. “It’s not just because of these wins. I really enjoy playing. It’s my favorite hobby.”
The Anne Arundel County woman plans to use her winnings to help her children, each of whom has recently made a big purchase or plans to do so soon. “I see this as money sent from heaven, so sharing it with my family seems like the perfect way to use it.”
