Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday December 1, 2012

Here is the Bet-with-El RECAP  for 1 December 2012.

We went to Golden Gate Fields, Race 8, for our Bet with El picks this time.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

Our #1 horse, Stressful Times, who we picked to win, was scratched.  Our #7 horse, Gratian, who we picked to place, WON the race to break his maiden at first asking.

Gratian had a good start, coming out of the gate 3rd.  He had a nice closing kick in the stretch and won the race by a half length.  

Gratian went off as the favorite at odds of 0.60.  Gratian finished IN THE MONEY returning $3.20, $2.40 and $2.10 for the win, place, and show respectively.
