Superfecta Box bet brings home the big money
A 19-year-old Baltimore woman raced to Maryland Lottery headquarters to claim a $15,470 Racetrax prize on a ticket she bought the same day.
The city resident found her good fortune by placing a Superfecta Box bet on horses 4, 7, 11 and 12 to finish in any order. Visiting Woodlawn Mart in Baltimore inspired her decision to play. The lucky lady was shocked to see that her horses crossed the finished line in that exact order!
“I literally chose my horses by using a few family members’ birthdays,” she said. “This is one of the happiest moments of my life. I want to thank my dad who showed me how to even play Racetrax. This is definitely a cause for celebration.”
The lucky winner plans to use a portion of her prize to visit her native land of Nepal. “I would love to see my grandparents,” she said. “They’re getting up in age and I have been really wanting to see them. Now I can. I feel so lucky to be in the USA.”
Her retailer is also in the money for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more. Woodlawn Mart located at 1818 Woodlawn Drive in Baltimore earned a $154.70 bonus from the Lottery.
