Here is the RECAP for 22 February 2014 for Bet-with -El.
This week we went to the Fair Grounds, Race 8, The Bayou Handicap Stakes Race, a 1 1/16 mile turf race for fillies and mares 4 years old and up with a Purse of $60,000.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as good.
We picked the #1 Horse, Class Included, to WIN.  Class Included came out of the gate good and stayed close to the pace on the rail, running 4th much of the race. She was able to come off the rail and entered the stretch 1st by a head, passing the favorite, Eden Prairie.  Class Included had a nice closing kick and finished the race IN THE MONEY, winning the race by 1 1/2 length.  Class Included went off at odds of 2.90 and returned $7.80, $3.80, and $2.60 for the win, place, and show respectively.  Class Included increased her earnings by $36,000 for a total life-time purse earnings of $630,826.
The #9 Horse, Eden Prairie, with no other than Rosie Napravnick in the irons, went off as the favorite at odds of 2.30.  Eden Prairie held on for the place spot.  We picked Eden Prairie with the #1 Horse, Class Included, in an exacta.  The $2 exacta returned $22.80.
