Pimlico Turf starting gate

Recapping selections from Day 13 (Saturday, April 21st) had 7 winners (3 Top Selections) having $2 Exacta in the 3rd ($90.60), 9th ($169.00) and 11th ($38.60); $1 Trifecta in the 3rd ($157.90); $1 Pick-3 in races 8-10 ($238.90) and races 9-11 ($291.60) and $2 Late Double ($53.80).

The BEST BET of the Day (13 6-3-0) appears to have a bad case of second-itis as he was in a perfect spot to get his second career victory, but seemed happy to run second, returning $4.60 for the PLACE and $3.60 to SHOW. The LONGSHOT PICK (13 2-1-3) was sent off at odds of 8-1, ran a very game race but ran out of real estate, coming up short by less than a ½ length in a 4-way photo finish, settling for a Dead Heat for 3rd, returning $3.20 to SHOW.
