The pari-mutuelly popular Three Of Spades proved to be too much for the competition to handle as he front-stepped his way to a 1:50.3 triumph in Monday’s featured $35,000 Preferred Pace at Dover Downs.

Jonathan Roberts got away third with Three Of Spades, who was sent off as the 2-5 favourite in the six-horse tilt, before brushing him to the lead before the half. Once in charge, the seven-year-old son of Cams Card Shark tore through middle splits of :54.3 and 1:23 before sprinting home in :27.3 to seal the deal by 1-1/2 lengths. TGs Valuable Art tagged along to grab second prize, and Harlingen Hanover closed from last to finish third.

Trainer Bib Roberts, who co-owns the 26-time winner with William De Lodovico of Adelphi, MD, watched the pacer extend his winning streak to three-in-a-row. The lion’s share of the purse boosted Three Of Spades’ seasonal bankroll to $192,680 while his overall earnings climbed to $514,598.
