Pompano Park has an 8-race card ready to roll with the first post at 7:20 EST. The 0.50 Pick 4 with a $15,000 guaranteed pool starts in Race 5. That sequence will be my focus and it has a low 12% takeout.
The driver with the hottest hands at the Pomp on Monday night was Wally Hennessey with three wins. There wasn't a trainer with more than one win on the card.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Post Time Terror-Should be in good shape by the first turn, Ingraham's choice will likely be in the hunt.
3-Watchwhatmyfeetdo-Has raced well at this level and has drawn inside again, best to respect.
5-Rollingndiamonds-Even effort after an injured scratch, looking for better and fits, barn has been hot.
5-A Plus Hanover-Has been trying hard and may have met a field that can be beat.
6-Part Time-Good try in last and 0-46 is an issue but will include versus this crew.
7-A Fool For Mark-13-year-old knows how to win and could here but needs to fire.
1-Backup A-0-29 at the Pomp but this is another very soft group, has been facing better so will use.
2-Machmemackie-Is consistent and has won 2 straight, must respect but will look to beat.
4-Crown Isle-Aggressive try in last and will take a swing for a square price off that effort.
3-Zoraze-2nd start after a rest, has the back class to beat this crew if tight enough, using at 7-1 in the ML.
5-Kegler Hanover-Last was the best effort since sick scratch on 2/20, a player if upswing continues.
10-Wesley Hanover-Can't overlook even from 10 post. Hennessy can find a way, and this is probably the best horse.
0.50 Pick 4
