Father’s Racetrax Luck Rubs off on Son’s Ticket

Son wins $35,306 on ticket bought by his dad

If your dad offers to buy you a ticket for his favorite Maryland Lottery game, say yes! A lucky Rockville son has his dad to thank for a $35,306 win on a Racetrax Superfecta ticket.

The 30-year-old son was at home with his own son when his father announced plans to play Racetrax at his favorite Maryland Lottery retailer. As the father paid for his Racetrax ticket, he called his son and asked if he had any interest in purchasing a ticket as well. The son said “Yes” to humor his father because he knows Racetrax is his dad’s favorite Lottery game. The winner’s dad placed a quick-pick Superfecta bet for his son. He bet that the 9, 7, 5 and 6 horses would cross the finish line in that exact order. The dad played that combination for five races and sat down to watch.

As the horses galloped past on the screen, the father watched closely. The fifth race concluded with his son’s horses performing in a spectacular fashion, crossing the finish line in perfect order. The dad scanned his son’s lucky ticket to confirm the unbelievable win and immediately phoned his son to share the exciting news.

The winner is still in shock and doesn’t have any plans yet for his prize.

Also celebrating is the Montgomery County retailer that sold the lucky ticket. The Cheese & Wine Shop at 2501 Ennalls Avenue in Silver Spring earned a $353.06 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more. Congrats to both lucky winners!
