For a couple of decades, Skip Leviton and his wife, Gertrude, have had their picture taken numerous times in the winner's circle at Maryland racetracks with a succession of stakes winners such as Gala Lil, Gala Harry or Gala Goldilocks.But the couple has never looked happier than they did yesterday when their 5-year-old horse, Gala Spinaway, won the $100,000 Polynesian Handicap at Pimlico Race Course.Jockey Mario Pino said the horse literally "charged away" from the opposition in the stretch, defeating runner-up Ibex by nearly three lengths.

WHY IS IT, Susan P. Leviton wonders, that America gives the least to kids who need the most? The question has tugged at her conscience for decades. And it has motivated the 53-year-old Baltimore native to go to bat for children who often have no one on their side. In the last quarter-century, she has been the most effective Maryland voice for children in need. Her insistent advocacy led to the closing of the abusive Montrose School for nonviolent delinquents, an improved state foster-care system and a shift of state aid to programs that help abused and troubled kids at an earlier stage.

Baltimore's plan to shift control of education away from the central headquarters and back to individual public schools was criticized last night as too vague and too timid.The decentralization proposal, which was put together at the instigation of the Baltimore Teachers Union, would begin as a pilot program at 20 schools next year. The city school board, which plans to act on the proposal Sept. 20, is holding a series of hearings this week to gauge public opinion.Last night's hearing, in the auditorium of the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, attracted just two speakers.

LAUREL -- Gala Spinaway rallied from fourth and won the $40,900 Bimelech Stakes at Laurel Race Course yesterday in a scene that has happened dozens of times through the years at Maryland racetracks.The reason for the familiarity was the personalities in the winners' circle. There were the winning owners, Gertrude and Skip Leviton, and the breeders, Nancy and Bob Leonard. They were there to celebrate another stakes winner sent out by trainer Bernie Bond.The colt had just won the seven-furlong race for 2-year-olds by 4 3/4 lengths over Solo Dash, and Skip Leviton, from Atlantic City, N.J., was asked how long his racehorses that included the name "Gala" in them had been winning stakes races.
