Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 21 December 2013

Here is the recap write-up for December 21,  2013 for Bet-with-El.

This week we went to Gulfstream Park, Race 6, a one mile $10,000 claimer race on the dirt for fillies and mares three years old and up, non-winners of three,,with a Purse of $$17,750.  The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #8 Horse, Repentless Lady to WIN.  Repentless Lady came out of the 6 hole after two scratches.  She came out of the gate slow and trailed the field for much of the race.  She started gaining on the field and was 5th at the 3/4 pole, entering the stretch 2nd behind the #6 Horse, Lina Picky.  Lina Picky, a long shot, going off at odds of 11.80 ran the race wire to wire to finish first.  Unfortunately, Repentless Lady was too far behind to overtake the winner and had to settle for the place spot, still finishing IN THE MONEYRepentless Lady went off at odds of 2.90 and returned $3.80 for the place and $3.00 for the show.

Lina Picky returned $25.60, $8.60, and $4.40 for the win, place, and show respectively.  The favorite, Guava Girl, finished out of the money.
