Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday September 21, 2013

Here is the RECAP for September 21,  2013 for Bet-with-El.

This week we went to ArlingtonPark, Race 2, a 7 furlongs $5,000 claimer, for fillies and mares 3 years old and up,  non-winners of 2, with a purse of $10,500.  The weather was cloudy and the all weather track was rated as fast.

We picked the #6 Horse, Zipping Away, to WIN.  Zipping Away came out of the gate good and entered the stretch 1st a head in front of the #7 horse, Mirka.  Unfortuantely Zipping Away was not able to hold on to his lead and finished 3rd, still hitting the board and finishing IN THE MONEY.  Zipping Away went off at odds of 3.70.  His show returned $4.00.

We picked the #7 Horse, Mirka as the long shot.  As it turned out Mirka was the better horse today.  She overtook Zipping Away in the stretch to take the win by 1 1/4 lengths.  Mirka went off at odds of 3.40.  Her win returned $8.80, $5.40, and $3.20 for the win, place, and show respectively.  Both our horses finished IN THE MONEY this week.
