Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 16 November 2013

This week we went to Gulfstream Park, Race 1,  7 furlongs on the dirt, $12,500 maiden claimer for 3, 4, 5 years old with a Purse of $16,000.   The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #2 Horse, Round Midnight, to WIN.  Round Midnight was scratched by the trainer.

We picked Saint Speedy as our long shot.  Saint Speedy went off as the favorite at odds of 1.10.  Saint Speedy came out of the gate 6th and entered the stretch 4 wide.  Saint Speedy was behind by 8 1/2 lengths, too far behind to catch the #1 Horse, Our Ritz, who ran the race wire to wire to take the win by 5 3/4 lengths.  Saint Speedy had to settle for the place spot, still finishing IN THE MONEY, returning $2.40 for the place and $2.10 for the show.

The #1 Horse and winner, Our Ritz, returned $6.20, $2.80, and $2.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.
