Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday March 9, 2013

Here is the RECAP for-Bet with-El March 9, 2013.

We went to Charles Town, Race 1, for our weekly Bet-with-El this time. The race was a 7 furlongs on the dirt, $5,000 maiden claiming race for fillies and mares 4 years old and up with a purse of $11,000. The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast..

We picked the #6 horse, Finalcurtaincall to WIN. However, Finalcurtaincall was scratched from the program, negating our win and both our exacta Bet-with-El picks for the week.

We had picked the #10 horse, Oh Mickey, to Place. Oh Mickey went off as the favorite at odds of 1.20. We did not think she would win because of her outside post position so we picked her to Place. As it was, she did not hit the board and finished 5th, out of the money. Oh Mickey came out of the gate 5th and unfortunately never improved on that position.

The winner was the #2 horse, Precious Cargo, who went off as the 2nd favorite at odds of 2.0. Precious Cargo ran the race in front-end fashion, running wire-to-wire to take the win by a neck. She returned $6.00, $3.80, and $3.00 for her win, place, and show respectively.
