Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 14 June 2014

This week we went to Golden Gate Fields, Race 4 for our weekly Bet-with-El.  The race was a 1 1/16 mile Allowance turf race for three years old and up, non winners of 2, with a Purse of $30,000.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as firm

We picked the #6 Horse, Salah Champ to WIN.  Salah Champ was fractious in the gate, but broke good coming out of the gate 2nd.  He entered the stretch 2nd, 6 lengths behind the front runner and pace setter, Marshall Marini (#5 Horse).  Salah Champ had a strong closing kick and made up the 6 lengths in the stretch to put his nose in front of Marshall Marini at the finish line.   Salah Champ finished IN THE MONEY and took the WIN.  As we predicted, Salah Champ went off as the favorite at odds of 1.40 and  returned $4.80, $2.80, and $2.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.

For those that wanted to gamble we recommended wheeling Salah Champ on top and bottom with Marshall Marini (#5) and More Champagne (#1).  Marshall Marini came in 2nd, taking the place spot.  The $2 exacta (6/5) returned $8.40.
