Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday, 15 June 2013

Here is the RECAP for Bet-with-El June 15,  2013..

We went to Colonial Downs, Race 4,  a 5 1/2 furlongs $16,000 claiming race, run on the turf  for fillies and mares 3 years old and up with a purse of $15,800.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as firm.

We picked the #1 Horse, Fixin the Books to WINFixin the Books went off as the favorite at odds of 1.00.  Fixin the Books came out of the gate 2nd and entered the stretch 1st, ahead by two lenghts..  Unfortunately, she was overtaken at the finish line by the #4 horse, Fancy Attitude, who went off at odds of 14.70 and who closed strongly.  Fixin the Books finished IN THE MONEY, but had to settle for the place spot, returning $2.60 and $2.80 for the place, and show bet.

The winner, Fancy Attitude returned $31.40, $7.20, and $4.80 for the win, place, and show respectively.

The #6 horse, Forest Diva, who we picked as our long shot, came out of the gate slow and did not fire.  She finished out of the money.
