Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday November 10, 2012

We went to Penn National, Race 9, for our Bet with El picks this time. The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.

Our #5 horse, Kings Village, who went off at odds of 5.10 finished off the board and came in 4th. The win went to the #4 horse, Raffie’s Choice, who entered the stretch third and had a nice closing kick to win the race by 2 1/4 length. Unfortunately, we did not pick the #4 horse and we finished out of the money this week.

We selected the #1 horse Miami Music and the #3 horse Bascom Hall for exacta combinations with #5 Kings Village.

The #1 horse, Miami Music, selection went off as the favorite at odds of 2.00.  Miami Music came out of the gate good, but must not have liked the track conditions and flattened out to finish last.

The #3 horse, Bascom Hall went off at odds of 4.70.  Bascom Hall broke slowly and failed to menace today.

We will do better next week!
