Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday April 27, 2013

We went to Fonner Park, Race 5, for our weekly Bet-with-El this time.  The race was a 6 furlongs starter allowance for 3 years old and up with a purse of $7,900.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #7 horse, Bear Always to WIN.  Bear Always went off as the favorite at odds of 1.30.  He came out of the gate 7h running behind the #2 horse, Blessed Day, who set a fast pace. Bear Always entered the stretch 7th, going 5 wide and was not able to make up any ground.  He finished 6th, off the board.

The # 5 horse, Willowy Danseur, came out of the gate good, and stalked the front runner, Blessed Day.  Willowy Danseur, went off at long odds of 19.80.  He had a nice closing kick and took the race for the win, returning $41.80, $14.00, and $6.40 for the win, place, and show respectively.

We picked the #3 horse, Geocache, as a long shot.  Geocache went off at odds of 12.10.  Unfortunately, Geocache never fired.  He came out of the gate 8th and finished off the board, coming in last.
