How come I’m never this lucky?
A woman placed a 10-cent bet at a Michigan horse track and won $21,584, a track official says. The Michigan woman, whose name was not released, made the bet Friday at Sports Creek Raceway in Swartz Creek, about 55 miles northwest of Detroit.
She placed two 10-cent Superfecta bets on a race being simulcast from the Hollywood Park track in Inglewood, Calif. The Superfecta requires gamblers to pick the four top-finishing horses in correct order.
“One of them won,” Sports Creek general manager Chris Locking told The Detroit News. She returned to the track Monday to collect her winnings.
“Pretty good return for 10 cents, isn’t it?” Locking said.
