Comedic Timing Wins Monday’s Featured Allowance Race As Mid-Atlantic Pick 4 Returns $1,910 For .50 Cents

August 29, 2022

Comedic Timing found an opening along the rail coming out of the final turn and then prevailed in a stretch duel with Cash Now before going on to a 1½-length victory in Monday’s featured $57,500 allowance at Monmouth Park.

The winner was the third on the eight-race card for jockey Angel A. Rodriguez, who only trails Paco Lopez in the Monmouth Park rider standings.

Sent off at odds of 7-1, Comedic Timing also contributed to a Monday Mid-Atlantic Pick 4 that returned $1,910.40 for .50 cents.

The Mid-Atlantic Pick 4 combines two races from Monmouth Park and two from Colonial Downs.

Trained by Pompeyo Gomez, Comedic Timing covered the mile over a firm turf course in 1:34.76 in earning his second career win from 11 starts. Favorite Artie’s Angel was another 1½ lengths back in third.

The Mid-Atlantic Pick 4 sequence started with Beau Brown ($10.40) in Monmouth Park’s fifth race and was followed by Witty Banter ($22.00) in Colonial’s seventh race, Comedic Timing ($17.20) in Monmouth Park’s seventh race and By the Sey Shore ($11.40) in the eighth race from Colonial Downs. By the Sey Shore finished second but was place first because of interference by Vocalize, who crossed the finish line first.

Racing resumes at Monmouth Park on Friday, Sept. 2. First race post time that day is 2 p.m.
