Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 19 April 2014

This week we went to Golden Gate Fields, race 4, a $20,000 1 mile maiden race for 3 year olds and up, run on the turf with a Purse of $13,000.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as firm.
We picked the #3 Horse, Time to Glow to WIN. Time to Glow had a very slow start coming out of the gate and was in the back of the pack much of the race.  Time to Glow entered the stretch fifth by 3 lengths behind King Kaylin.  However, Time to Glow  had plenty left in the tank and closed strongly to overtake front runner Whoa Boy and to take the WIN and finish IN THE MONEY.
Time to Glow went off as the favorite at odds of 1.40 and returned $4.80, $3.20, and $2.40 for the win, place, and show respectively.
We picked the #4 Horse, Game of Kings for a Long Shot.  Game of Kings had a slow start coming out of the gate as well and entered the stretch 7th by 6 lengths.  Although he closed strongly, he was not able to make up enough ground to finish in the money.  Game of Kings finished 4th.
