Newborn Sassy was a decisive 1:51.2 winner and became the fastest pacing mare in Harrington Raceway history.

Newborn Sassy, trained by Jim King Jr., broke the old track record held by Embassy Seelster (1:51.3).

Tetrick promptly placed his charge on the front from post five where she led the field of five comfortably in fractions of :27.4, :55.2 and 1:24. Nerida Franco N pulled the pocket on the final turn but Newborn Sassy opened up on the field and kicked home impressively to the wire. Nerida Franco N held second narrowly over Fashion Showdown.

It was the 25th career win for Newborn Sassy, who has banked more than $814,000 in her career.

Art Stafford Jr., Mike Cole and Corey Callahan each had a driving double.
