Bet-with-EL RECAP Saturday 2 August 2014

This week we went to Saratoga, Race 10, The Whitney Handicap G1 Stakes race, run at 1 1/8 mile for 3 year olds and up with a Purse of $1,500,000.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.
We picked the #5 Horse, Palace Malice, to WIN.  Palace Malice had a good start, coming out of the gate 3rd, but it was pretty clear that he was not on his game this day.  He dropped back from 3rd to 5th entering the stretch, behind by more than 20 lengths.  Although, he went off as the favorite at odds of 0.65, he came up empty for this race and finished 6th, still earning $45,000.
We predicted that the #1 Horse, Will Take Charge, to come in 2nd.  Will Take Charge came out of the gate 7th and entered the stretch 3rd.  He was not able to improve on that position but finished IN THE MONEY.  His show returned $4.60.
We predicted the #3 Horse, Moreno to come in 3rd.  As predicted, Moreno came out of the gate 1st and set the pace.  Moreno entered the stretch by 1 1/2 lengths and was able to hold on to this lead, finishing IN THE MONEY and winning the race in wire-to-wire
