Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday 29 March 2014

Here is the RECAP for March 29, 2014 for Bet-with-El.This week we went to Gulfstream Park, race 4, The Rampart G3 Stakes race, run at 1 1/8 mile on the dirt for fillies and mares 4 years old and up with a Purse of $150,000.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast..

We picked the #8 Horse, Unlimited Budget to win.  Unlimited Budget with Johnny Velazquez in the irons came out of the gate 2nd and drafted the favorite and pace setter, Devil’s Cave, much of the race.  These two horses dualed for the lead and Unlimited Budget was able to put her nose in front of Devil’s Cave near the finish line.  However, the eventual winner was Garmay Noir who trailed the field much of the race, coming out of the gate last in a field of 6.  Garmay Noir improved her position to 4th at the 3/4 pole and entered the stretch 4th by 5 1/2 lengths going 3 wide.
Garmay Noir had a strong closing kick and passed both Devil’s Cave and Unlimited Budget to take the WIN.  Garmay Noir, as a long shot, went off at odds oft 49.10.  She returned $100.20, $20.20, and $4.80 for the win, place, and show respectively.   Unlimited Budget had to settle for the place spot, still finishing IN THE MONEY.  Unlimited Budget went off at odds of 2.20.  She returned $4.20 for the place and $2.40 for the show.
