Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday December 15, 2012

Here is the RECAP  for December 15 Bet-with-El.

We went to Golden Gate Fields, Race 5 this time.  This was a $20,000 maiden claiming race with a purse of $13,000, 1 mile on the turf for 2 year olds.

We picked the #2 horse, Moses on the Mesa  to win.  Moses on the Mesa went off at odds of 3.10. Unfortunately, he was fractious in the gate and stopped running at the 1/2 mile. He finished off the board, coming in last.

The #7 horse, Cardio Royal, who we picked as our Long Shot went off at odds of 5.80.  Cardio Royal had a good start.  He hung 4 wide in the 2nd turn and was 3rd coming into the stretch.  He had a nice finishing kick and finished IN THE MONEY to come in second, behind the winner Mojave Heat by 1 3/4 lengths.  And by the way, our own Albert correctly picked Mojave Heat as the winner.

We did good picking the Long Shot Cardio Royal.   Cardio Royal’s place and show money returned $5.40 and $3.00.
