Pompano Park begins the week with a 9-race card. The popular 0.50 Pick 4 starts in Race 6. The sequence has a $15,000 guaranteed pool with an industry low 12% takeout and it will be my focus.
Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.
4-Bell I No (9/2)-Came up with a huge 149.3 mile in the 1st start for the Wine barn to take a picture last week. Steps-up and will use thinking there is more in the tank.
5-Seeying Eye Single (6-1)-Here is another stepping-up after a sharp win in a quick mile. Now makes 2nd start at the Pomp and will consider in the same fashion as #4.
6-Loud Splash (6-1)-This is the other Wine entry who also faces better coming off a win. Started from the rail in last but has done good work coming off cover. This race may set-up nicely for this 4-year-old and will use looking to beat the tepid 5/2 program chalk #7.
6-Here Comes William (9-1)-Barn is 0-8 to start the meet but 9-year-old drops to a much better level to take a picture. Should be put into play early and with a top effort can notch 2nd win this year.
8-I'vegotagirlcrush (7/2)-Did drop to this level last week, was bet down to 6/5 and just missed. Now moves outside but has the gate speed to get a good early seat. Is only 1-20 this year but there aren't any standouts in this field.
1-BNB (8-1)-Has been trying hard but is trip dependent. Could land in the picket behind #6 and is well worth a swing at the morning line odds.
6-Sand Sniper (5/2)-Tripped out and won last. Hennessey will follow the script and probably land on the point. Not going to offer much of a return but is a player at this class.
7-Stellar BB (4-1)-Started from the rail on 12/2, ended up racing wide and fading down the lane as the chalk. This trip probably will be much better but needs to survive a hectic start and should be a better price.
1-Feelin Lika Winner (5/2)-Hennessey sticks, now drops and moves inside. Has won 9 of 35 starts at the Pomp and may look to wire this field or take a pocket trip behind #5.
5-Mac Anover (9/2)-Drops after two tries versus Open II company and makes its 4th start of the meet. This looks like the best chance for a picture since arriving at the Pomp.
6-Agedchedar Hanover (6-1)-Does drop but will need best to beat this class. Should offer a solid price as this race may set-up to come off cover and roll by down the lane.
Race 6) 4,5,6
