Not even at the finish, as the two of them hit the line as a team and the first dead heat of the meet to win was posted. Lil Susie, who races for Peter Fuller, came on again in the last couple of yards with a vigorous rush to hook Bay View Stables Hello Ace. Both of them were longshots and Lil Susie paid 3.40 to win, but Hello Aces price in the split pool was cut to .60. A length and one-half in back of the embattled pair came Copley Stables Lucky Ballot for third, while John Gibsons Sun Better, the solid choice was fourth, after getting off poorly and not being able to find a hole on the turn or the upper stretch, Henry Wajda and Vinnie Spinale, on Lil Susie and Hello Ace, respectively, drove their mounts the 6 furlongs in 1:12% over the fast track. Hello Ace was the shorter price of the pair at 3 to 1. The attendance for a sunny afternoon numbered 9,573. First Victory This Year It was the second winner of the day for Wajda, who scored with the longshot My Dare in the fifth race and now starts a 10-day suspension. Lil Susie was making her third start of the year and getting her first win, while Hello Ace went her one better in each department. He was winning his second race in twice as many outings. The start was straggling with horses coming out in sections, and the favorite had to take up soon after getting out. In the meantime Lils Susie streaked to the front, with Hello Ace right after her. Nap Time and Sun Better followed the pace-making pair, ahead of Lucky Ballot, Mrs. T., Whats-the-Hurry and Kentucky Ban-"dit. The first tow made the loop with only a head separating them and Hello Ace having the advantage on the outside. Sun Better had moved up strongly along the rail to be third and was waiting for eithef of the leaders to fan out. The move did not happen as Lil Susie and Hello Ace kept close together heading for home. Through the stretch Hello Ace appeared to have his-filly rival measured, but Wajda got one last lunge out of the Fuller lady and she" dropped her head on the wire along with her rival. Nap Time, on the out- " side, finished third before Sun Better. The others were never in the hunt.
