Hello Great Mate and Lewayne Miller posted a mild upset victory in Friday night's feature condition event.

Leaving from post position number four, Miller settled in early and made a quarter pole move in 27.3.

Hello Great Mate then led the field through fractions of 57.2 and 1:25.1 before Miller stepped on the gas to cruise to victory in a new seasonal mark of 1:53.2.

It was the fourth win of the year for the 4-year-old daughter of Allamerican Ingot – Cheery Hello, who is owned by Kentuckiana Racing Stable and is trained by Erv Miller.

Stash The Cash (Fern Paquet Jr.) used a two-hole trip to finish second, while Shesa Bragn Dragon (Brandon Simpson) finished third despite a tough first over journey.
