Winners-Over pacers, racing for a purse of $4,500, were featured at Cal Expo on Friday night, on which Cycle Power repeated. Maintaining the lead through the lane, there'd be no catching Cycle Power as the Nathalie Tremblay owned and trained gelding reported home a winner ($18.60) by 2-1/4 lengths, timed in a season’s-best 1:54.3. Amigo De Garcia finished in second and One And Only (Jim Lackey) finished 2-1/2 lengths farther back, in third. "It was one of his better ones and he raced excellent," concluded winning driver Lemoyne Svendsen said. Cal Expo currently offers a reduced 15 percent takeout rate on all Pick-4s. Additionally, all Late Pick-4s now come with an increased $20,000 (guar.) pool. Also, the Friday Late Pick-4 offers no takeout on all winning wagers made on-track or at Twinspires.com, while the Saturday Late Pick-4 will be broadcast on TVG.
