Novice Ellicott City Racetrax Player Wins $29,530 Prize

$1 Superfecta bet pays off big

An Ellicott City woman is super happy she recently learned how to play Racetrax. Typically a Mega Millions and Powerball player, she decided to give Racetrax a shot and wound up $29,530 richer.

Last Friday, the 46-year-old wife and mother played a $1 Racetrax Superfecta ticket for 20 draws at E-Z Convenience in Towson. Everything changed after the fifth game on her ticket.

“I was so excited,” she told Lottery officials. “I was watching the game and couldn’t believe it.”

The lucky winner said she chose the horses on the ticket – 8, 10, 6 and 3 – and they finished in that exact order to give her the $29,530 prize. The probability of that happening was 1 in 71,009.

When asked what she planned to do with her windfall, the Howard County resident said she wants to take a nice vacation.

E-Z Convenience located at 8104 Loch Raven Blvd. in Towson wins, too. For selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, the Baltimore County retailer earned a $295 bonus from the Lottery. The lucky retailer is no stranger to winning. Just last month, on July 12, the store sold a $100,000 winning Powerball ticket to a Baltimore retiree.
