St. Mary’s County Racetrax Rookie Wins $40,309

Novice credits her husband for her Lottery luck

A Southern Maryland woman is sure glad she let her husband talk her into playing her first game of Racetrax. The rookie took home $40,309 on a $1 Superfecta wager.

“He plays all the time and he was explaining how to play so I thought I would give it a try,” she said. The 38-year-old said her husband selected her numbers, which were random choices. The lucky winner added that she didn’t know what to expect as her Superfecta bet on horses 10, 11, 6 and 1 turned into a big win.

“I was very excited. I can’t believe that I won,” said the St. Mary’s County resident.

The rookie reports that her husband has had a few Racetrax wins, but none as large as her windfall. She works as a property manager and plans to use the prize to pay bills.

She bought the winning ticket at Oxon Hill Citgo in Prince George’s County. For selling a winning Racetrax ticket worth $10,000 or more, the retailer at 6104 Oxon Hill will receive a  bonus of $403.09, equal to 1% of the prize.

The lucky player picked a great time to try Racetrax. She bought the ticket during the first leg of the Racetrax Triple Crown ($6 for $5), which coincides with horseracing’s Triple Crown races. From May 15-21 and June 5-11, players can make a $6 Racetrax purchase to get a $1 discount! The maximum discount is $5 on any ticket valued at $30 or more.
