A retired Anne Arundel County woman played numbers from her dream and won the biggest Racetrax prize of her life.
Retired Anne Arundel County counselor wins with Superfecta wager
Inspired by unforgettable numbers in a dream, a retired addictions specialist placed a Racetrax Superfecta wager the next day that delivered the biggest prize of her life. The Severn resident told Lottery officials that she has always had good luck with the computer-animated horseracing game. “I win all the time,” she said, “but not like this!” She won $33,485!
The lucky woman’s story begins the night of Wednesday, June 15. “These numbers kept showing up in the dream I was having. They were everywhere.” When she awoke just after midnight, the anonymous player – who is calling herself “Coco” for Lottery publicity – said she couldn’t get back to sleep. “The numbers just wouldn’t go away, even after I woke up.”
“Coco” wasn’t so sleep deprived the next morning, however, that she forgot her Lottery routine. She buys a few Racetrax games several days a week. “Those numbers could have meant a lot of things, or nothing. Just in case, though, I used them for a $20 Racetrax Superfecta ticket as soon as I left the house.”
The 58-year-old mother of two found herself at Lottery retailer Lucky’s Deli & Market that Thursday evening. “Coco” placed a Superfecta wager on the 10, 8, 7 and 3 horses for 20 races.
“I got a printout of the races on my ticket and screamed when I saw that the numbers had come out, and in the exact order in my dream,” said “Coco.” “I screamed again when I scanned the ticket and saw how much I’d won.” Many customers in the crowded store celebrated her $33,485 win with her. “After checking with their parents, I bought candy for every kid in the store,” she said.
The Anne Arundel County resident plans to use her winnings to move to a larger home.
Lucky’s Deli & Market at 1101 Odenton Road in Odenton helped turn those numbers from her dream into a $33,485 Racetrax reality. For selling the winning ticket, management there will receive a $334.85 bonus. The bonus is equal to 1% of the prize.
