Bet-with-El RECAP for Saturday May 25, 2013

Here is the Bet with El  RECAP for May 25,  2013.

We went to Delaware Park, Race 4, a $7,500 claimer for fillies and mares 3 years old and up, Non-Winners of 2, with a purse of $14,000.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as wet fast.

We picked the #2 Horse, Just a  Wildflower to come in 1st.  Just a Wildflower went off as the favorite at odds of .60.  Just a Wildflower came out of the gate good and stayed close to the pace running 3rd until she entered the stretch where she overtook the other two horses and won the race by 2 3/4 lengths.  As predicted, she finished IN THE MONEY and returned $3.20, $2.40, and $2.10 for the win, place, and show respectively.

We picked the #7 horse, Tale of the Dragon, as the long shot.  Tale of the Dragon went off as the second favorite, at odds of 4.60.  Unfortunately, the track condition was not to her liking and she finished out of the money, tiring in the stretch.
