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

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

We went to Gulfstream Park, Race 5, for our weekly Bet with El this time.  The race was a 1 3/16 mile on the turf, allowance optional $25,000 claimer, non winners of 1 for fillies and mares 4 years old and up, Purse $58,500,  The weather was clear and the track was rated as firm.

We picked the #2 horse, Tabreed to WIN.  Tabreed had a slow start coming out of the gate 7th.  She entered the stretch 5th and had a strong closing kick.  Unfortunately, she could not overtake the #8 horse, Strathnaver, who entered the stretch 1st.  Strathnaver took the win by 3/4 lengths in front of Tabreed, who probably would have won the race but for the awkward start.

Tabreed went off as the second favorite at odds of 1.90.  She finished IN THE MONEY, but had to settle for the place spot, returning $3.60 and $3.00 for the place and show respectively.  The winner Strathmayer went off as the 3rd favorite at odds of 3.70.  She returned $9.60, $4.60, and $3.40 for the win, place, and show respectively.
