Susie\'s Magic and driver David Miller darted between Passionate Glide and Pure Ivory to win the $500,000 Breeders Crown for 3-year-old filly trotters in 1:55.4 in a thrilling three-way photo finish.

Passionate Glide took the lead at the :56.4 half, but struggled to hold sway as Elegantimage winner Bee Line stuck her nose in front as the field turned into the stretch.

Pure Ivory made a bold bid to upset Passionate Glide, but Passionate Glide showed grit and hung on until Susie\'s Magic split those two and just got up to win by a nose. Pure Ivory eked out the place cash over Passionate Glide.

Susie\'s Magic is a Dream Vacation filly owned by L & L Devisser and trained by Tony O\'Sullivan.

\"Halfway down the lane she was traveling as fast as anybody and I was just hoping she’d get through,\" O\'Sullivan said in the winner\'s circle.

Miller said Susie\'s Magic was much more manageable this week after a bike switch. In last week\'s Breeders Crown elimination, Miller said Susie\'s Magic was hitting the arch of the bike as she built up a seven-length lead at the half before finishing second to Pure Ivory.
