A Maryland woman hit her lucky streak.

The 51-year-old from Hyattsville won an extra $30,000 playing the same Racetrax horse numbers she played just earlier this year.

In May, the specialist at a rehabilitation center won $30,936 playing her favorite combination of 11, 10 and 12. She chose the computer-animated horse numbers because they had the least chance of winning.

And now the horses have beaten the odds for her – twice.

The woman, who has not been publicly named but identified with the phrase ‘Favor Ain’t Fair’, said she just had a ‘feeling’ on Tuesday July 12, one so strong that she went to buy a ticket on her lunch break with the same combination.

She said the cashier initially put her numbers out of order. But she corrected him and the numbers must have stuck in his mind – because he was the one who shouted to her that his winning horses had arrived.

“I wasn’t watching the races, so when he called I was shocked. Another $30,946? I started jumping up and down,” she said.

She won the exact same prize as in May, down to the dollar amount.

She and her husband are looking for a new home.

“This win will make our account a little more impressive,” said Favor Ain’t Fair.
