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

Here is the RECAP  for July 27,  2013 for Bet with El.

We went to Fairmount Park, Race 8, a $3200 claimer for 3 years old and up, run at 6 furlongs on the dirt with a Purse of $5,000.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #7 Horse, Ruddy’s Buddy to WIN.. Ruddy’s Buddy went off as the favorite at odds of 1.80.   Ruddy’s Buddy had a good start and came out of the gate first and then followed the pace setter and the eventual winner, Spurtability. Ruddy’s Buddy entered the stretch 2nd going two wide. but did not have enough in the tank to hold on for the place. Ruddy’s Buddy came in 4th, finishing out of the money.

The #5 horse, Spurtability, took the lead at the 1/2 pole and never looked back.  He finished strong, taking the win by 1 1/4 length.  Spurtaability went off as a long shot at odds of 16.20.  His win returned $34.40, $17.20, and $7.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.
