A sharp break from post 7 helped Kiss Me Suzy score a wire-to-wire victory in Saturday's $20,000 Q-Racing Video Lone Star Distaff Challenge Stakes at Lone Star Park.

Trained by John Stinebaugh for owners Connie L. Young and John L. Herrick and sent to post at odds of 12-1, Kiss Me Suzy went 400 yards in :19.986, and her winning margin was one length from Best Moonflash. Sergio Dominguez rode the homebred 4-year-old Kiss My Hocks mare, who earned a berth in the October 22, $100,000 Q-Racing Video Distaff Challenge Championship (G1) at Horseshoe Indianapolis.

Kiss Me Suzy was bred in Oklahoma, and she was coming off of an eighth-place finish, 3 3/4 lengths behind winner Valiant Stars, in the August 27, $36,000 Q-Racing Video Ruidoso Distaff Challenge at Ruidoso Downs. The mare has won four of 22 starts, and the $9,400 winner's share of the purse from her first lifetime stakes score increased her bankroll to $78,240.

Sin Sational Kisser ran third and was followed by Ima Fancy Keeper, Shes Tough, A Fleeting Kiss, Leading Senorita, Ladys Wicked and Fabulous Royale.
