Pompano Park will be an outlet for money made on any Super Bowl props as the 0.50 Pick 4 is set to go in Race 6. The sequence has a $15,000 guaranteed pool with a very low 12% takeout.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
2-Bay Meadows (4-1)-Besides being 0-20 this guy comes off a spirited effort when the trip took him the long way around. Plano is back between the pipes and banking on a much smoother journey.
3-Hesallaboutdabass (3-1)-Usually tries to come off a helmet and follows cover but not last week. Sanzeri got the top into a 55.3 half and will look for another aggressive try.
4-Just Don't Wait (4-1)-2020 has been a good year so far for this 4-year-old who has 2 wins and 2 third place finishes in 4 starts. Thinking Wallis will get the lead or sit in the 2-hole.
2-Hot Art (4-1)-Plano should dial it up to get a close-up seat and could trip out. Chances go up with a good start and 10-time winner in 2019 should be a player.
4-Feelin Lika Winner (2-1)-Drops out of Open II class and 10-year-old has banked over $500k. Offers no value and gets a new pilot tonight. Will respect but will look to others.
7-Neat (6-1)-Makes 2nd start off a sick scratch and could pop at a nice price with a good steer by Cushing. The start of this race should be very interesting and will lean towards a neat trip for Neat.
3-War-N-Munn (2-1)-Program chalk deserves to be in the mix and does drop but isn't a picture taker. Gets a good post draw but needs to finish off the mile to take the top prize.
5-Late Night Joke (3-1)-Veteran gets a new set of hands as Plano takes a spin. Chances go way up if pace is swift but at this level may leave and take control. Either way best to respect.
6-Jins Shark (4-1)-Hasn't been as effective at the Pomp as at HoP but gets post relief and should like the company.
4-Always Glorious (7-1)-Gets some class relief and my view is Wallis will put in play early. Could be sitting on big try at a nice price.
6-Mach West (4-1)-Winner of 4 of last 6 starts fits well with this group and Cushing has driven in the past. The start will be key as there is gate speed to the inside.
