Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday October 12, 2013

This week we went to Fingerlakes, Race 8, a mile and 70 yards on the dirt, $8,500 claimer, for 3 years old and up, with a purse of $17,000. The weather was clear and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #1 Horse, Stopthefever, to WIN. As expected, the entry 1A, Special Action, was scratched by the trainer. Stopthefever had a perfect start, coming out of the gate first. He ran the race wire to wire, entering the stretch by 2 lengths and taking the WIN by 3/4 length. Stopthefever went off as the favorite at odds of .40. Stopthefever returned $2.80, $2.20, and $2.10 for the win, place, and show respectively. That is a 40% return for the win. We are once again IN THE MONEY.
