Most people head to the track to take in a fine meal, a beverage or two and play the ponies. Although it's not expected, the idea of hitting a big windfall sure sends the imagination off and running. Now, imagine you don't hit that score at the track, but on the way to it.

The report explains that the couple had just sold their business two months ago. The job had kept them working seven days a week for the last 12 years.
