Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday February 23, 2013

Here is the RECAP for Bet-with-EL February 23, 2013.

We went to Gulfstream Park, Race 7 for our weekly Bet with El this time.  The race was a 1 1/16 mile Allowance Optional $75,000 claimer turf race for 3 year olds with a purse of $54,500.  The weather was clear and the track was firm.

We picked the #4 horse, Tesseron to WIN.  Tesseron went off as the favorite at odds of 2.30.  He was 3rd at the 3/4 pole and entered the stretch 4 wide.  He was overtaken by the #3 horse, Black Onyx, who had a nice closing kick and who ended up to be the winner..  Tesseron finished 4th out of the money.

Black Onyx went off at odds of 9.80 and finished nicely with Joe Bravo in the irons.  Black Onyx paid $21.60, $10.20, and $6.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.

We picked the #9 horse, Redwood Kitten to PLACE.  Redwood Kitten went off at odds of 7.90.   Redwood Kitten came out of the gate 2nd and entered the stretch 1st.  He was overtaken by the winner and as we predicted, Redwood Kitten settled for the place spot.  Redwood Kitten’s finish IN THE MONEY returned $7.20 for the place and $4.20 for the show.  Our Redwood Kitten place pick returned a nice 260% on your money!
