L.A. WOMAN CASHES SANTA ANITA’S $10,000 MYSTERY MUTUEL TICKET ON SUNDAY; 85-YEAR-OLD DEDICATED FAN TURNS MAILER INTO BIG PAYDAY
ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 16, 2022)—A regular at Hollywood Park up until its closing in December, 2013, Los Angeles resident Rosa Canton is now a familiar face at Santa Anita and she’s glad of it as she turned a Mystery Mutuel mailer into a $10,000 payday on Sunday at The Great Race Place.
“I’ve turned in my Mystery Mutuel ticket every time I get one in the mail, but it’s only paid two dollars every time I bring it to the track,” said Rosa Canton, 85, and a Santa Anita XB Rewards member. “I’ve been coming to the races every week for over 45 years. I used to go Hollywood Park every week when it was open, but now I come to Santa Anita every week to play the horses.
“And today, I’m so excited. I won $10,000!”
