Ace Up Her Sleeve coasted to an easy victory at Colonial Downs on Friday taking the field gate to wire and drawing off to a 6-length win as the 1-9 favorite. Ace Up Her Sleeve breaking from post 2 (program number 3) set a pressured pace on the inside while in hand, made a bid leaving the turn to shake clear, then drew off to prove much the best.

We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “That was a very sweet win. It’s great to have this filly finally get her diploma. She’s a nice horse and we should be able to have fun with her as we go forward.”

We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “We had this filly get Virginia-certified and, as soon as Colonial Downs opened Steve targeted this race. This was a huge payoff for a horse that went off at 1-9. You rarely get these kinds of situations and you have to be ready to take full advantage when they arise. This is a great check for the partners.”

Ace Up Her Sleeve earned $45,000 for Friday’s win.

We’ll see how Ace Up Her Sleeve comes out of the race and Steve will point her accordingly.
