Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday April 13, 2013

Here is the RECAP for Bet-with-El on April 13,  2013.

We went to Beulah Park, race 4, for our weekly Bet-with-El this time.  The race was a 5 1/2 furlongs on the dirt $3,500 claimer, non-winners of 3 years old and up with a purse of $3,200.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as good.

We picked the #2 horse, Silver Rocket to WIN.  Silver Rocket went off as the favorite at odds of 1.40.   Being a sprinter, he came out of the gate good taking an immediate lead.  With the track deep on the inside, Silver Rocket was not able to hold on to his lead and was overtaken by the #5 horse, Dalamar, when entering the stretch.  Silver Rocket held on for the place, one length behind the winner, finishing IN THE MONEY.  He returned $3.00 and $2.20 for the place and show respectively.

Dalamar went off at odds of 4.00 and returned $10.00, $3.80, and $3.00 for the win, place, and show respectively.

We picked the #7 horse, Thomas Jefferson as a long shot.  Thomas Jefferson went off as the second favorite at odds of 2.90.  Unfortunately, Thomas Jefferson never fired and trailed the field throughout.
