Al Cimaglia: Pompano Park Pick 4 Analysis | Monday, April 4, 2022

Pompano Park has a 12-race card scheduled with the feature rolling in Race 6 an Open Trot with a $14,200 purse. The 0.50 Pick 4 starts in the same race. The sequence has a $15,000 guaranteed pool with a 12% takeout, and it will be my focus.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 6

5-Max (9/5)-Lost all chance on an interference break caused by #6 last time. Hennessey takes over for Miller and could get revenge.
6-Flagman (3-1)-Has been in fine form and tonight will leave from post 6 instead of being handicapped with post 9. This Plano trainee is the main foe for the favorite.

Race 7

3-China Dream (3-1)-Hennessey should be on the point or in the pocket behind the program chalk. Either trip could work for a picture.
6-Another Daily Copy (1/1)-Nine-year-old doesn't race often and has only 2 wins in 16 starts over 2 years. So, not loving the even money program odds but this is a soft spot. Drops in for a tag and should be a player versus this crew.

Race 8

3-Splitsville (8/5)-This race is a real taffy pull and there is no value here. But someone has to win and Hennessey could provide the right steer to give this old-timer a chance to score.
4-Stache (8-1)-Has the speed to beat this group and if Spano provides a sharp drive an overdue win could happen at a decent price.
5-Overnight Shipper (8-1)-Will blast out as usual and maybe this field is shallow enough that Hoffman can hold the lead until the wire.

Race 9

3-Elrama N (3-1)-Can compete at this level and finally draws inside. Hennessey should have this 13-year-old in striking range at the head of the lane.
5-Fred And Roz (8-1)-Raced well in the 1st start of the meet versus this kind. Will take a swing that dropping back to a more comfortable spot will lead to a trip to the winner's circle.
8-Song Cycle Senese (7/2)-Had a 2-race win streak snapped when taking on $20k claimers from the 9-hole. Drops to a competitive level and can be a threat even with this post draw.

0.50 Pick 4
