Baltimore’s “Frosty Girl” celebrated an $11,520 win on Racetrax.
Baltimore resident celebrates $11,520 Lottery prize
A quick stop for a candy bar turned into something a whole lot sweeter for a loyal Lottery player from Baltimore.
The massage therapist was buying a snack at Cheema Brothers BP in Baltimore when she made a spur-of-the-moment decision to purchase a ticket for Racetrax, the Lottery’s computer-animated horse racing game. On her Superfecta Box ticket, she wagered $1 for each of the 24 possible combinations of horses 1, 6, 7 and 9 – numbers she said are lucky for her. Indeed they were! She played just one round and the horses finished in 6, 9, 7, 1 order to give her an $11,520 prize.
The 53-year-old dubbed herself “Frosty Girl,” using the name of her pet Maltese. Her pup is a good-luck charm and was with her while she bought the ticket and stayed for the race.
“I wasn’t watching the race, I was listening,” she said. “I heard 6, 9 and 7, and I was thinking, ‘1, 1, 1 … what about the 1?’”
When the race was over, the store clerk checked the ticket and delivered the good news. The lucky winner and her dog quickly left the store.
“I was excited,” she said. “I ran home and told my family.”
It’s not the first time “Frosty Girl” has experienced the thrill of a Lottery win. She won a $5,000 Racetrax prize on another Superfecta ticket in August 2015. She also enjoys playing Pick 4 and Multi-Match and is determined to win a $50,000 top prize in the Bonus Match 5 game.
“I WILL win Bonus Match 5,” she said, adding that Cheema Brothers BP is a “good place” to buy Lottery tickets. “They have a banner up that says they sold a $100,000 winner there.”
Indeed, the store, located at 17 Carroll Island Road in Baltimore, sold a $100,000 scratch-off winner in February. And the winner of that prize told Lottery officials that he was drawn to the store because it sold a $77,700 winning scratch-off in 2014.
For selling “Frosty Girl’s” winning Racetrax ticket, Cheema Brothers BP will receive a bonus of $115.20 from the Lottery – equal to 1 percent of the prize value. The lucky winner said she plans to put her prize in the bank and catch up on bills.
