Pompano Park's track record holder, Tweedle Dum, will shoot for his ninth straight win on Wednesday evening in the Florida oval's Open Trot.

The eight-year-old gelding, who is listed as the 5-2 morning line favourite, will start from Post 8 in the featured fourth race for driver Walter Ross Jr.

A career winner of 52 races from 151 starts, Tweedle Dum is the fastest trotter in the history of Pompano Park, having tied the former World Record of 1:53.2 in 2007.

In 2006, the gelded son of Star Challenge was the winningest trotter in North America with 21 victories – which also stands as a track record at Pompano Park. Diane Norris and Alfred Brotter of Pompano Beach, FL own Tweedle Dum, who is returning from a ten-month layoff due to injury.

"I just keep my fingers crossed that he stays sound," said trainer Gordon Norris. "He is such a game horse. You don't come across many like him in a lifetime."

His main competition will come from Canadian invader, Farmer Jones, who makes his Pompano Park debut from Post 7 for driver Denis St. Pierre. A winner in three of his last five starts, all at different racetracks, Farmer Jones is a career winner of $235,000.
