Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday March 2, 2013

Here is the Bet-with-El RECAP up for March 2, 2013.

We went to Laurel Park, Race 8, for our weekly Bet with El this time.  The race was a 1 mile on the dirt Ceasar’s Wish Stakes race for fillies 3 years old with a purse of $150,000.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #1 horse, Walkwithapurpose to WIN.  Walkwithapurpose came out of the gate good, took the lead and never looked back.  She entered the stretch in front by 7 lengths and widened this margin to 9 1/2 lengths to take the win and finish IN THE MONEY in impressive style.  She went off as the favorite at odds of .40.  She increased her purse earnings by $90,000 and made this win her 5th win in a row.  To the betting public, she returned $2.80, $2.20, and $2.10 for the win, place, and show respectively, returning 40% on your money for her WIN.

The #5 horse, Seven Stars ran 5th and the #2 horse, Purple Plum ran 4th, both finished out of the money.  The place spot went to the #3 horse, Listen Boy, who went off at long odds of 45.50.  Unfortunately, we did not pick Listen Boy to place for the Exactas.
