After a life's mark victory of 1:53.2 earned by Glam Cam in a $6,000 purse conditioned test on the Tuesday evening, April 12 program at The Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park, trainer Dan Hennessey was happy to comment on the five year old Camotion-CR Charisma mare's future potential.
"It was kind of a fortunate situation that brought the mare to my stable just three starts ago in the first place" Hennessey explained in live post-race trackside TV interview. "Jim McDonald had too many horses in his barn so I took her on when Rod Allen decided to bring her back for racing this year. In this trip tonight she was perfectly handy and I'm really liking what I'm seeing so far in three starts with her" he added.
Dan's brother Wally was in the bike to execute a perfect pocket trip score over the pace-setter JM Dancing Star in rein to Chuck Connor Jr. Rumrunner Bluechip with Tom Sells in the bike was well back in third.
"In the past week Arthur Mergenhagen (of Williston, FL) made a deal with Rod Allen and bought Glam Cam privately" Hennessey said. "She's got some work to do but she could be develop into a top class mare. Because she was small, she didn't even race until she was four years old. Tonight, I changed her from a blind bridle to an open bridle. She's got us thinking there's more ability there but we'll take it slowly from here."
Ranger injured in race mishap
Bruce Ranger, the leading driver of the current meet and in the entire history of Pompano Park, was injured in a mishap at the start of the 5th race on the Tuesday evening program.
Four year old pacing mare Stylish Soiree N stumbled and fell early in the race and Ranger tumbled onto his shoulder. To his credit, Ranger was able to control the mare and get her to the paddock without further incident.
Before leaving the track, Ranger was helped out of his driving suit by his fellow drivers because of his shoulder injury. He then went to hospital to have his injuries diagnosed. "Well at least having the guys here help me change into my street clothes before I went to the hospital probably saved me $400 bucks in emergency room costs" Ranger quipped to Associate Judge Gregg Keidel before leaving the track.
Ranger had to book off his final five drives on the Tuesday evening program.
On Wednesday evening, the re-match of Corleone Kosmos and Andover America is scheduled for the $14,000 purse featured trot. Free live streaming and replays are available in the 'racing' tab at www.theislepompanopark.com . Saturday evening, April 16, a 12 race card has been drawn and that's the final card before a one week pause in the live schedule from April 17-24 at The Winter Capital Of Harness Racing.
