Chase The Ace took the Filly and Mares Open Pace at the Fraser Downs harness racing circuit for the second straight week with a three-wide swoop.
Brandon Campbell tucked the mare into the four-hole early and followed through the quarter in :28.4 and half in :56.3. Campbell pulled the horse out behind cover, which immediately stalled, and then went three-wide as the field approached three-quarters in 1:24.
Chase The Ace then vanquished pocket-sitter Cusdmagicdragon (Kelly Hoerdt) and Rocket Mystery (Rod Therres) in the lane to win by a length and three quarters in 1:52.3.
Chase The Ace, sent off at 3/5, shattered her lifetime best by two and four-fifths seconds with the win. The daughter of Armbro Baylor also increased her tally to 15 wins from 45 starts and improved her bankroll to more than $80,000. Campbell also trains for Jodi Loftus of Calgary.
Campbell won five of the evening's 12 dashes, surpassing Hoerdt in the drivers' standings with just one card to go in the meet. Hoerdt won three. Campbell now has 30 wins to Hoerdt's 29. Scott Knight and Rod Therres are tied for third with seven victories apiece.
Fraser Downs will return with 10 races on Apr. 16 for its final program until September. The action will kick off at 8 p.m. PDT.
