Miss Balladiers Late Bid Results in Victory Collars Lone Sentry Sixteenth From Wire and Then Draws Off SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., Julne 27. Lightly weighted and running vastly improved over her showing of a week ago, Morris Wexlers Miss Balladier really had her racing shoes on as she won the Indian Chief Purse, seventh and feature race, before 13,169 heat-defiers at Suffolk downs today. In her previous start, Miss Balladier showed little as, at even money, she finished fifth in a field of six, but today, again in a six-horse field, she was closer to the pace in the early running of this mile and a sixteenth event. As was expected, the pace was set by E. Snyders Ariel Actress and this sprinter ran like one, opening a good lead over R. W. Collins Lone Sentry. R. H. Schwartzs Singular and Rumstick Lodges Gothic and Miss Balladier were back a bit and far in the ruck was Layout. As the field went into the backstretch, Lone Sentry made a run at Ariel Actress and closed some distance, but still not enough to get close. Miss Balladier had moved up a bit and all the field with the exception of Layout, began to bunch up near the turn for home. In the stretch, Lone Sentry took over the lead form Ariel Actress and he looked like the winner until Miss Balladier collared him at the sixteenth pole and time took the winners share.
