Ashley's Husband scored his first Open Pace victory at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Saturday.

The four-year-old pacer's win served as one of three on the night for his trainer Kyle Spagnola whose Major Way and Life's Lessons each recorded their third consecutive victories on the card.

Ashley's Husband (Henry Clay) moved first over at the half on front running Let's Rock Together (Frank Coppola Jr) who had to work awfully hard to secure the early lead. Though things looked bleak around the clubhouse turn for Ashley's Husband, the Spagnola trainee shifted gears heading to three quarters and flew in the stretch before stopping the timer in 1:52.3.

Bet On Roulette (Wally Hennessey) followed the winner's cover to finish second and RU Ready To Rock (Bruce Aldrich Jr) completed the trifecta in the $17,000 feature. Ashley's Husband, who was the race's 9-5 betting favorite, was piloted to the Open score by Jordan Derue.
