Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday January 19, 2013

Here is the Bet-with-El RECAP  for  January 19, 2013

We went to  Aqueduct, Race 7 for Bet with El.    This was a mile and 70 yards Optional Claiming $14,000 Allowance race on the dirt for NY breds 4 years old and up with a Purse of $57,000.

We picked the #3 horse, Junior Officer, to WIN.  Junior Officer went off at odds of 3.35.   He broke somewhat slow and entered the stretch 4th going 3 wide.  He rallied but could not overtake the winner, Jet Set Cat, who ran the race wire to wire.  Junior Officer finished IN THE MONEY, but had to settle for the place spot.  He returned $4.30 for the place and $5.00 for the show.

We had picked the #8 horse, Towering Moon, to place.  Towering Moon went off as the favorite at odds of 0.55.   Towering Moon had a very slow start out of the gate and never fired.  He entered the stretch 5th and finished 5th.
