Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday February 16, 2013

Here is the Bet with El RECAP for February 16, 2013.

We went to Fair Grounds, Race 4 for our Bet with El this week. This was a 6 furlongs on the dirt $5,000 claimer for non winners of 4 for fillies and mares 4 years old and up with a purse of $17,000

We picked the #1 horse, Pharme’s Missteak to WIN. Pharme’s Missteak went off as the favorite at odds of 2.30. She came out of the gate a little slow and entered the stretch 6th. She made up some ground but could not catch the winner Red Bean Ice Cream, who went off at odds of 2.40.  Pharme’s Missteak finished IN THE MONEY, but had to settle for the place spot, returning $3.40 and $2.60 for the place and show.

We recommended an exacta wheel, wheeling Pharme’s Missteak on top and bottom with the #5 horse, Red Bean Ice Cream and the #8 horse, Envoy’s Production. As predicted, we hit the exacta with the #5 and the #1 horse, returning $23.60 for a $2 exacta. A $2 exacta wheel would have cost $8. Our exacta bet returned a nice 195% on your money. The #8 horse, Envoy’s Production finished 4th.
