Driven aggressively from post four by
After passing the half-mile pole in :58.4 after a soft second panel that went in :30.4, Guy Gets Girl trotted unchallenged down the backstretch to reach the three-quarters marker in 1:27.1.
The son of Keystone Nordic entered the stretch with a 1 ½-length advantage, and was never seriously threatened down the lane to prevail by a length at the wire over the pocket-sitting Talk About Me (Mickey McNichol).
Guy Gets Girl returned $5.20, $4, $2.80 for the victory. Talk About Me paid $4.20, $3 for second, while C Le Noir (Wally Hennessey) brought in $2.80 for third.
A four-time winner from 12 starts this year, Guy Gets Girl has visited the winner’s circle in three of his last four outings at Pompano. (Pompano Park)
