Sent the second choice in the betting, Teachmehowtotory proved number one with a decisive win in the featured $11,500 Minnesota Sired Three-Year-Old "A" Division Trot on Sunday (July 20) at Running Aces.

Race-favourite SB Madame Secretary made a break near the start and was well back after that while SD Eliminator surged to the early lead from post 2 and then yielded for the pocket when Nick Roland launched to the lead near the three-eighths marker with Teachmehowtotory, who left from post 5.

Teachmehowtotory ($5.20) was never in doubt after taking the lead and sealed the victory when she trotted her third quarter in :28.2, leaving her rivals well behind in progress to a 1:58.4 mile for a three-and-a-quarter length score in a lifetime best.

SD Eliminator held second while Passion In Paris picked up third.

The winning filly is by Braggart and out of the Rail Splitter mare Rails of Victory, she is owned by Set The Pace Racing, LLC and trained by Jessica Johnson.

The $6,900 "B" split went to Go Margeaux (Mooney Svendsen, $15.80) in a career-best 2:00.4 mile over Bekkums Black Rose and Al Mar Lovey Dovey. The winning trainer is Justin Anfinson.

The $4,600 "C" division went to Al Mar Spicey Talk (Brady Jenson, $48.00) in 2:03.1 for owner Joshua Horvat and trainer Katie Horvat.

Drivers Nick Roland and Braxten Boyd led the Sunday program with two winners each.

Live Racing returns to Running Aces on Tuesday (July 21) with first post at 1:00 p.m. (CDT) and will feature a carryover in the 20-cent Pick-5 Jackpot wager of $11,501.82.
