Pompano Beach, FL – It was a change of tactics that landed Bombilla Hanover in the winner’s circle for the featured $8,500 F&M Open 2 Pace on Monday night (Nov 11) at Pompano Park.

The 5-year old daughter of The Panderosa has a wicked early turn of foot, but driver David Ingraham elected to back off at the start and let a trio of early leavers battle through the opening quarter of 26.4.

When the dust settled it was Jasperthat A (Jimmy Whittemore) who had made the lead in the quick opening quarter, and continued to lead the field through the half mile station in 55.1.

The hot early fractions began to take their toll past the 5/8 marker as the outer flow began to rush up quickly on the outside and sweep by the tiring leader. Ingraham moved his charge 3-wide from fifth and took over the lead in a matter of strides past three-quarters in 1:23.4. It was all over from that point as Bombilla Hanover coasted home an easy three length winner under the wire in 1:53.4.

It was the 9th seasonal victory, and 21st career victory for Bombilla Hanover in only her 73rd career try. The winner is conditioned by Peter Blood, who co-owns along with Rick Berks and Lewis Whitaker.

Bruce Ranger Remains Sidelined

Leading driver Bruce Ranger was off all mounts again on Monday night with a back injury, making it the second consecutive card where Ranger has been a late scratch. Associate Judge Gregg Keidel said that Ranger is expected to return to action on the upcoming Wednesday night card.
