Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday October 20, 2012

We went to Retama Park, Race 4, for our Bet with El picks this time.  The weather was clear and the track was fast.

Our #9 horse, Mo Lady, who we picked to win went off as the favorite but, coming from the outside in post position 9, had to settle for 2nd.  The winner, Simonessa, in post position 5, came out of the gate 1st.  Simonessa ran wire to wire and had a 4 lengths lead coming into the stretch.   Mo Lady was unable to make up the 4 lengths in the stretch and finished 2nd.

Mo Lady returned $2.60 for a place bet for a 30% return on the money and $2.20 for a show bet for a 10% return on the money.  We once again finished IN THE MONEY.
