Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday October 26, 2013

Here is the  Bet with El RECAP for October 26,  2013.

This week we went to Retama Park, Race 3,  5 1/2 furlongs on the dirt, $17,000 Allowance Non-Winners of 2 for 3 years old and up, non-winners of 2, with a purse of $17,000. The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

We picked the #5 Horse, Hacienda, to WIN.  Hacienda came out of the gate 3rd and entered the stretch 4 wide, 2nd behind Chitaurus.  Hacienda was not able to hold on to this position and finished 3rd IN THE MONEY.  Hacienda went off as the favorite at odds of 1.20.   His show returned $2.10

We picked the #4 Horse, Chitarus as the Long Shot.  Chitaurus pressed the pace and ran the race wire to wire, finishing 1st by 3/4 lengths.   This 3 year old colt increased his wins to 2 out of 6 starts this year.  Chitaurus went off at odds of 1.60.  He returned $5.20, $4,00, and $2.10 for the win, place, and show respectively.  Both our horses finished IN-THE-MONEY this week.
