The Pompano Park Pick 5 was not hit on Sunday night. That will lead to a $8,533 carryover for tonight's sequence and a $30,000 guaranteed pool.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
1-A Farmboys Success (5-1)-Took advantage of a great trip in first start for new barn. Gets another inside post draw and could score an encore.
5-Alway'syourway (5/2)-Climbs up the claiming ranks after two nice wins. This will be tougher but is having a big year and will respect connections.
6-Grantor Hanover (7/5)-Drew off by 5 lengths in 153.3, 9-year-old knows his job and should be in the hunt for another picture.
4-Prairie Westerngal (2-1)-3-year-old can leave in a hurry, has finished second in four starts here and could get a picture with a clean trip.
5-Rock My World (7/2)-Likes to race on the lead, start will be key as there is other gate speed in the field.
8-Galarina (8-1)-Loves the Pomp and last two starts have been sharp after coming off the bench. Fits here and could win at a nice price despite the post.
3-Donegal Jim (8/5)-Moves in from post 8 and comes off a tough trip, Hennessey sticks and best to respect.
5-Rocky Regal (5/2)-Showed improvement in second start of the meet and this could be go time for 11-time winner in 2019.
7-Drive'em Cowboy (3-1)-Hennessey's choice is a beaten chalk who gets some post relief in third local start.
8-Rockin Away (7/2)-This will be the third start back after a rest and last was better, looking for upswing to continue.
1-Itsnoproblemman (5/2)-This isn't a group of all-stars and this guy shows speed on smaller ovals, looks like a player.
2-Rock N Fantasy (8/5)-Hennessey's choice over the 1-6-7, like #1 has never raced at the Pomp before but should be in the mix. Comes by way of HoP, not sure if he is 8/5 worthy but fits.
7-Dee's Rocketman (9-1)-7-year-old has had issues and has been off since 8-4 but qualifier looked good. Will take a swing for a price with a horse who has done well at the Pomp.
Race 1) 1,5,6
Race 2) 4,5,8
Race 3) 3,5
Race 4) 7,8/
Race 5) 1,2,7
