Climber was able to pull off a win in the $200,000 Indiana First Lady Stakes.

It turned out to be an easy task for Climber as she elevated herself into stakes winning status again Wednesday, Aug. 3. The sophomore filly scored the win in the 20th running of the $200,000 Indiana First Lady Stakes with Manny Esquivel aboard. The stakes is one of three that originated during the inaugural season of racing at the track in 2003.

Starting from post 8 in the 10-filly lineup, Climber had a little bit of a hike to head to the lead early in the one-mile event. Poetic Verse and Eddie Perez grabbed the top spot as Climber was content to sit on the outside in stalking position, flanked by Miss Luv Shack and Fernando De La Cruz on the outside and Lil Evie and Tommy Pompell on the inside. As the field moved into the final turn, Esquivel asked the filly to accelerate and she responded, circling to the lead and putting lengths between her and the remainder of the field by the head of the lane.
