Trifecta bet gives Baltimore woman a $30,946 prize
Sound the trumpets and line up the horses, it’s time for a race! A Maryland Lottery Racetrax fan who acted on a lucky feeling and bought a ticket for the next race walked away with more than $30,000 this week.
Her routine trip to Broadway Supermarket in Baltimore ended with lots of excitement!
“I was going to get a cup of coffee and, as I was paying, I just had a feeling and decided to buy a ticket,” said the Baltimore woman. She placed a $1 Trifecta bet that horses 11, 10 and 12 would finish in that exact order and watched the race while enjoying her morning coffee.
With her eyes glued to the monitor, the 65-year-old felt her heart beat increase with every step her horses took toward the finish line. In the blink of an eye, she scored her biggest win ever.
“My heart jumped out of my chest,” she said. “It was a great rush.”
The lucky winner plans to share her prize with her sons and pay off bills. Also celebrating this big win is the lucky Lottery retailer. Broadway Supermarket located at 108 South Broadway in Baltimore earned a $309 bonus from the Lottery for selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more.
