Chase The Ace captured the Handicap Open Pace for harness racing fillies and mares at a muddy Fraser Downs on Apr. 7, 2021 while making her 2021 debut.
 
Driver Brandon Campbell tucked her into third through a first quarter in :29.3. They remained inside as consistent open contender Cusdmagicdragon (Kelly Hoerdt) carved out fractions of :58.3 and 1:27.1 on the front end.
 
Campbell triggered Chase The Ace's move coming around the final turn, and the pair easily stepped around the top two. She won by four and a half lengths in 1:55.4 going away. Rockin Mystery (Rod Therres) reached up for second over Cusdmagicdragon, who finished third.
 
CHASE THE ACE REPLAY
 
 
Chase The Ace has now won 14 of her 44 lifetime tries and earned more than $75,000. Campbell also trains the five-year-old Armbro Baylor mare for Jodi Loftus of Calgary. The horse went eight-for-23 last season and made just shy of $50,000.
 
Hoerdt and Campbell renewed their battle for the top of the drivers' standings, winning five and three races, respectively. Hoerdt holds a three-win advantage over Campbell after the Apr. 7 program. Scott Knight won two to improve his tally to six on the evening and jump Therres for third place.
 
Hoerdt also trained five winners and leads Jim Marino in the trainers' table by 11.
 
Fraser Downs will be back on Friday, Apr. 9 with 10 races starting at 8 p.m. PDT.
