Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday November 24, 2012

We went to Penn National, Race 5, for our Bet with El picks this time.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

Our #6 horse, Magic Mesa, who we picked to win had a good start coming out of the gate 2nd.  She was well positioned and entered the stretch in 1st.  Unfortunately Magic Mesa got overtaken by a long shot, the #7 horse, Oh Lolly. Oh Lolly, who went off at odds of 21.80 took the win in the final strides of the race.

Magic Mesa who went off as the favorite at odds of .30 had to settle for the place spot.   Magic Mesa finished IN THE MONEY and returned $2.20 and $2.10.  She is poised to take the win the next time out.
