Shes All In, driven by Rick Plano, scored a repeat victory in Pompano Park’s $8,500 Open Handicap Trot for mares on Tuesday night (March 28), stopping the clock in 1:55.4.

The eight-year-old daughter of Revenue S won an early tussle with Serendipitious, handled by Wally Hennessey, and Celebrity Artemis, with Marcello Spano handling her lines, and went on to score a handy win in 1:55.4 off of panels of :27.4, :57.1 and 1:26.3.

Serendipitious, in the pocket the entire journey, finish a length away in second while McKenzies Star and Fern Paquet Jr. teamed up for show honors over Celebrity Artemis.

The 4-5 favourite Diamond Dagger made a miscue leaving and was distanced the entire mile.

In a post-race interview, driver Rick Plano, who also owns and trains Shes All In, remarked, “With the five post winning about a quarter of the races here, I decided to put her in gear from the get-go as she likes to be in the thick of things early.

“We made the lead fairly easily and, when we got to the half kinda cheap (:57.1), I was pretty confident that she could carry her speed all the way home.

“You know, I bred this mare and, as I said last week after her win, she’s been very good to me.

“She gives me everything she’s got on the racetrack, and I wish I had a hundred more like her!”

Shes All In now sports a 3-2-1 scorecard in 13 starts this year, good for $20,635. Lifetime, the gallant mare has 31 wins in a career spanning 209 starts with $314,293 on her card.

As the 7-5 second choice in her quintet, Shes All In paid $4.80 to win.

Mike Simons held the hot driving hands on Tuesday night, driving five winners on the nine-race card.

Simons won with Nower Power ($31.80), Big Valley Speed ($4.80), M T Ur Pockets ($4.00), A Weekend ($5.60) and Tater Twister ($5.40).

Racing continues on Wednesday night with pacing mares in the spotlight. A full field of nine will be going to the Hummer Starting Gate in the $11,000 Open Handicap with Godiva Seelster the early 2-1 favourite despite being assigned the outside post.

There is a $10,000 guaranteed pool for the track’s Pick 4, conducted on races six through nine. Post time is 7:20 p.m.
