Ppk5/8 - Ward Earns First Pompano Win

Trainer Fred Ward of Scarborough, Maine has earned his first win since shipping to a winter base at Pompano. For his career he's amassed over 430 recorded wins for almost $900,000 in purse earnings.

In his sixth start at the meet, the 55 year old conditioner harnessed up Thaacaretheeso and she received perfect off the pace handling from David Ingraham to score in 1:56 over a field of $4,000 mares claiming pace rivals. The six year old Blissful Hall-Top Of The World mare had campaigned for Geoffrey Reynolds of Fairfield, ME but she was claimed after this win by owner-trainer Don Cromer of Pompano Beach, FL.
