HARRINGTON, Del. - CC Racing and Jo Ann Looney-King's Newborn Sassy ($3, Tim Tetrick) was a decisive 1:51.2 winner and became the fastest harness racing pacing mare in Harrington Raceway history Tuesday in the $15,000 Mares Open.

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 pulled the pocket on the final turn but "Sassy" opened up on the field and kicked home impressively to the wire. Nerida Franco 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.
