Trifecta winner captures even bigger Superfecta Box prize
A marine mechanic from Glen Burnie found that keeping vessels seaworthy isn’t all that floats his boat. The pursuit of his second passion – playing the Maryland Lottery’s Racetrax game – paid off, literally!
The 66-year-old jockeyed his second big Racetrax win by picking a Superfecta Box combination worth a princely $21,523.20! The handy fellow said he developed a “horse sense” for his winning bet after watching a series of races. On his 13th race, the 3, 10, 11, 12 combination of horses crossed the finish line, turning his wager into the big prize.
This isn’t the virtual handicapper’s first brush with Racetrax excitement. The Anne Arundel County man won a sizable prize on a Trifecta combination just a few years ago.
The happy player says the timing of his win, combined with the holidays, could not be sweeter. He plans to use the funds from his second encounter with Lottery luck to help his family and to shore up his personal investments.
Also celebrating is the Mobil gas station in Glen Burnie that sold the lucky ticket. For its role in the latest Superfecta win, the retailer located at 7200 Ritchie Highway earns a $215.23 bonus from the Lottery. Congrats!
