Bet-with-El RECAP Saturday December 8, 2012

Here is the Bet-with-EL  RECAP  for December 8.

We went to Betfair Hollywood Park, Race 9, a half million dollar Grade I stakes race for 2 year old fillies for our Bet with El picks this time.  The weather was cloudy and the track was rated as fast.

Our #6 horse, Executive Privilege, who we picked to win finished off the board.  She was the heavy favorite at odds of .40.  Executive Privilege had a good start coming out of the gate and was 2nd entering the stretch.  Unfortunately, she flattened out and came in fourth.

We had also picked a Long Shot, the  #1 horse, Pure Fun, who finished IN THE MONEY.  She WON the race coming from the back of the pack and entering the stretch 3rd.  Pure Fun had a nice closing kick and won the race by a length.  Pure Fun’s win increased her purse earnings for her owners by $260,000.  For the betting public, Pure Fun returned $14.40, $6.00, and $10.60 for the win, place, and show respectively.
