Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday October 27, 2012

We went to Charles Town, Race 8, for our Bet with El picks this time.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated fast.
Our #7 horse, Amazing Light, went off as the third favorite at odds of 4.70.   I am sorry to say she finished out of the money and came in fifth.   She was in post position 7 and had a slow start coming out of the gate 5th.  She did not fire today and ran an even race staying in 5th position going around the track and entering the stretch 3 wide.

Just so you know, the #3 horse, Princess Aly the winner today, was picked on top by our own Horse Race Advantage ranking algorithm, “Albert”.  Princess Aly went off as the favorite, with odds of .70.  She won the race with flying colors, coming out of the gate first, a lead she never relinquished.  Princess Aly was 5 lengths ahead at the 1/2 pole and extended that lead to 10 lengths when she crossed the finish line.

Premium members can review Bet-with-El Premium Saturday October 27, 2012 to see El’s analysis and rationale in picking the #7 horse over the #3 horse.  There is always the opportunity for lessons learned in handicapping.  Again, we regret that the horse did not come in the money.    However, we  continue  >80% overall in the money and coming out ahead!   I am glad to see “Albert” perform well.
