Series Mania At Pompano Park

Bettor Thantherest certainly lived up to his name once again as the four-year-old gelding won the $8,500 second leg of the Springboard Pacing Series in a romp Wednesday at Pompano Park.

And for the third time in his last four starts, Bettor Thantherest stopped the clock in 1:53.4, which stands as his lifetime mark.

The co-feature saw Mr Frank Ster take the field to the quarter pole in :28 seconds while Bettor Thantherest and trainer/driver Bruce Ranger enjoyed life in the pocket. Ranger wasted little time, however, in making the quarter pole move to the top with his charge.

Bettor Thantherest took them to the half in :57.3 before coming under attack from Kevlar Hanover. He pressed the leader to the three-quarter pole in 1:25.2 before running out of steam. Bettor Thantherest pulled away to win by more than four lengths over Force To Rekinwith. Mr Frank Ster was third.

It was the fifth win this year for Bettor Thantherest, who is owned by the Fred Monteleone Stable of Pompano Beach, FL and Salvatore Promuto of New Rochelle, NY .

The $17,500 final of the Springboard Pacing Series goes next Wednesday evening at Pompano Park.

In the $7,200 second leg of the Spring Fling Trotting Series for $8,000 claimers, Docs All Class won for the second straight week thanks to a 1:58.1 triumph for driver Bruce Ranger. Docs All Class was on top every step of the way en route to the victory over Curly Whirly and Slated For Success.

It was the seventh win this year for the seven-year-old son of Robespierre. He is trained by Mike Deters and owned by the Deters, Burch and Fishman Stables.

The $16,000 final of the Spring Fling Trotting Series also goes next Wednesday evening at Pompano Park.

The Wednesday evening program also featured two $7,000 second round divisions of the Aime Choquette Trotting Series.

The first division saw previously unbeaten Whosgoinwhosstayin wire up his foes in a career-best clocking of 1:58 for driver Mickey McNichol.. The trotter, who tasted defeat for the first time in last week’s assignment, knocked off G W Gracie Dane and Wesleys Fortune.

It was the first win in two starts this year for Whosgoinwhosstayin and the 13th win in 14 career starts for the Florida-bred, three-year-old son of Basil. Whosgoinwhosstayin is trained and co-owned by Linda Kakaley with breeder Sophia Valkanoff of Pompano Beach, FL.

In the second division, it was the duo of Bruce Ranger and Mike Deters teaming up again to win with Super Lotto in 1:58.3. The pocket-sitter, Trot Monster, was second with Keya Maria third.

It was the third victory this year for the four-year-old, Florida-bred son of Wewering. The gelding is co-owned by James Armstrong and Mike Deters.

The $17,500 final of the Aime Choquette Trotting Series also goes next Wednesday evening at Pompano Park.
