Nauset Beach's best shot puts him right there in Wednesday allowance


HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – Trainer Terri Pompay said she never used to know what she was going to get when she sent Nauset Beach out to run during the early stages of his career. But with maturity, the 6-year-old has brought a little more consistency to his game, and his best effort should have him right in the thick of the battle in Wednesday’s $49,000 optional-claiming feature, which drew a field of six older horses going 1 1/16 miles on the main track.
