Bel Air player finds Lottery luck in Baltimore
A 61-year-old Harford County man braved a steady rain on May 11 to visit Lottery headquarters in Baltimore and claim an $18,740 Racetrax prize on a ticket he purchased at a Baltimore Royal Farms store.
The lucky Bel Air man placed a Trifecta wager that horses No. 12, 10 and 9 would finish in that exact order. One of the 20 races on his April 4 ticket produced the big win.
For selling a winning Racetrax ticket valued at more than $10,000, the lucky retailer is also in the Winner’s Circle. The Royal Farms store located at 6411 Fort Smallwood Road in Baltimore will receive a $187.40 bonus from the Lottery – equal to 1 percent of the prize.
May is a great month to try your luck at Racetrax. Now through May 28, the Lottery is offering Racetrax players a $6 for $5 promotion. Any $6 Racetrax purchase will receive a $1 discount! The maximum discount you can receive is $5 on any ticket valued at $30 or more.
Players will see the following message printed on their tickets when the discount is applied: “Congratulations! You just received $(X) off your Racetrax wager!”
