Racetrax-Playing Truck Driver Finds Road to Riches

Wins $23,590 on Racetrax Trifecta bet

A Harford County truck driver who won $64,000 a few years ago playing Racetrax experienced a case of déjà vu after his horses galloped to a $23,590 win.

The 60-year-old visited Hawkins Point Citgo in Baltimore and played 10 races to once again land a huge win.

“I was surprised that those numbers came out when they did,” the lucky man said. He plays the Lottery daily, using his own numbers, and likes to anticipate which numbers will and won’t play again. His Trifecta bet that horses No. 12, 11 and 9 would finish in that exact order put him back on the road to riches.

The Bel Air man has kept his great news under wraps and plans to keep his win a secret. The father of two children and grandfather of one, he plans to share small amounts with family members from time to time. The remainder, the lucky winner said, will go to pay down bills.

His lucky retailer was Hawkins Point Citgo located at 6301 Efficiency Way in Baltimore. For selling a winning Racetrax ticket of $10,000 or more, the city retailer will receive a bonus of $$235.90 from the Lottery – equal to 1 percent of the prize.
