A Harford County driver’s Racetrax horses steered her into a welcome trip to the Maryland Lottery’s Winner’s Circle this week to collect her $18,381 prize.
The lucky Street resident found her windfall after stopping at Royal Farms #95, which is located at 3606 Conowingo Road in her town. The 44-year-old placed five Superfecta bets that horses 5, 8, 7, and 4 would finish the race in that exact order.
“Before I could even sit down, I saw that my horses had won,” she said. “I was definitely surprised.” The winner chose horses that represent family members’ birthdays and said she plans to save most of her prize. “This win is like a big buffer for me if something unexpected comes up,” she said.
Her lucky Harford County retailer also finishes as a champion. For selling a winning Racetraxticket of $10,000 or more, the Royal Farms store earns a $183.81 bonus from the Lottery. The bonus is equal to 1 percent of the prize.
