Pompano Park - Record Handle in its 57 year history

Pompano Beach, Florida...February 2, 2021...Pompano Park recorded the highest single night handle in its 57 year history on Monday night with harness racing wagering tallied at $1,436,603.

Records were also set for each of the two Pick-4 events, each with a $30,000 guaranteed pool and a 12% takeout--the lowest in the industry.

The Late Pick-4 had a pool exceeding $62,000, eclipsing the former record just a few races earlier in the first Pick-4 of the program.

Not only did the handled beat last year's comparable night by over $1 million, it was the eighth night where handle exceeded $1 million that included several "near misses" according to Director of Racing Gabe Prewitt.

"The racing has been competitive," Prewitt said, "the driving colony here has been strong and we try and give the players a solid product race-after-race."

Currently, the track offers nightly guarantees on their Pick-4 events and free programs on the Isle Casino Racing website.
