Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 13 September 2014

This week we went to Belterra Park, Race 6, a 6 1/2 furlongs Allowance race run on the dirt, non-winners of 2, for three year olds and up with a Purse of $16,000.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #4 Horse, Ruxton to WIN.  As we predicted, Ruxton would stay close to the pace.  He came out of the gate 4th and was 2nd by a head at the 1/2 pole and entered the stretch 1st ahead by 1/2 length.  As predicted, Ruxton showed a strong closing kick, finishing IN THE MONEY, and taking the WIN by 4 1/2 lengths.
The #2 Horse, Sir Sunnyboy, who entered the stretch 3rd by 2 1/2 lengths also had a strong closing kick and put his nose on the wire at the same time Ruxton did, resulting in a DEAD HEAT for the WIN.  Ruxton went off at odds of 2.50 and returned $3.80, $4.00, and $3.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.  Sir Sunnyboy went off at odds of 4.70 and returned $5.20, $6.00, and $3.00 for the win, place, and show respectively.
