Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday February 9, 2013

Here is the Bet with El RECAP for February 9, 2013.

We went to Delta Downs, Race 7 for our Bet with El this week. This was a 6 1/2 furlongs on the dirt $5,000 claimer non winners of 3 for 4 years old and up with a purse of $10,000.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the long shot, #3 horse, Shappa, to win. Shappa went off at odds of 15.60. Shappa had a slow start coming out of the gate 10th. He had to make up too much ground and finished out of the money coming in 5th. We were right that a long shot would win the race, unfortunately we did not go long enough.  The winner, Lindau went off at odds of 26.60 and returned $55.20, $12.80, and $9.00 for the win, place, and show respectively.

We picked the #1 horse, Chief Counsel to place. He went off as the favorite at odds of 0.50 and as predicted, Chief Counsel finished IN THE MONEY, coming in 2nd for the place spot. Chief Counsel returned $2.80 and $2.80 for the place and show.
