Monday, January 11: Pompano Park Late Pick 4 Analysis

by Al Cimaglia

January 11, 2021

Pompano Park has a 13-race card scheduled for this evening including two Pick 4 sequences. The Early Pick 4 starts in Race 6 and the 0.50 Late Pick 4 begins in Race 10. I will focus on the Late Pick 4 and both sequences have a $30,000 guaranteed pool.

Comments and selections below are based on a fast track.

Race 10

2-Caviart Reagan (7-1)-Veteran drops to the level of last win and should offer some value. Simons shouldn't have much trouble getting on the engine and that route could lead to a picture.
4-Loud Splash (2-1)-Recent form has been dull but Hennessey takes the lines and maybe he will be able to wake this
5-year-old up. Might be able to fall into the pocket or get the point in front of #2 and did beat Open Handicap company here on 11/29.

Race 11

5-Explosivebreakaway (7/2)-Did not miss the board here until last week after breaking stride. Did have 4 straight second place finishes at this class. Will take a swing with this favorable post draw. Best to respect, did win over $53K in 2020 with only 17 starts.
6-DG's Caviar(3-1)-Doesn't usually break but every once in a while, like last week, will take a bad step. In the previous race appeared to be fired out of a canon going down the lane. Goes right back in the box so assuming there aren't any issues. Should be a major player.
7-Muscles For Life (3/2)-Got some revenge on #6 in last due to the miscue. Not sure Hennessey can get the top and steal a quarter. Using, but at 3/2 will hope others cross the line first.

Race 12

3-Pittsburgh Hanover (8-1)-Will look here and toss the 2nd chalk #1 off the ticket. Was in fine form before making a rare break in last. Should be a juicy price, Ingraham can work a stalking trip hoping for quick fractions and then roll by late.
4-Groovey Kid (8/5)-Hennessey will look to wire this field after coming off a win. Steps-up but will be bet and will need a top effort for an encore.
5-TT Conway (5-1)-Even effort in last after being off almost a month and now tries Lasix for the 2nd time. Versatile sort who draws well and fits if ready for a big try.

Race 13

2-Peter Dalt (4-1)-Comes off a win in a quick mile and could benefit from a similar trip here. Usually is camera shy and faces better but best to respect versus this bunch.
4-Rocksapatriot (8-1)-Drops to the level of last win and tries Lasix for the first time. Has been in the money in 7 of 14 starts at PPk with 3 pictures. Has the speed to compete with this crew and will use at a nice price with the chalk stuck with post 9.
9-Lets Roll (2-1)-Wired the field in last and has the gate speed to use the same script tonight. Has won 5 of 12 at the Pomp and if gets the top without using up much gas it will be probably be another win in south Florida. Does face a better field so will look to others as well and will likely be bet hard.
