LEBANON, OH. - A pair of $25,000 James K. Hackett Memorial championship races were contested on Saturday night at Miami Valley Raceway, followed by an $8,500 Open Handicap pace that resulted in a harness racing all-age track record clocking.   Ohio-sired three-year-old fillies battled in the first Hackett final with favored Crown Time Keeper (Chris Page), one of the elimination heat victors last week, winning the war in 1:55. The triumphant lass was pressured to the half mile marker in :55 flat, but had enough in the tank through the stretch to hold off pocket-sitting Paydaze On The Way (Kayne Kauffman), the other elimination winner, and show finisher A P P Panda (Greg Grismore).   Crown Time Keeper is owned by Esther Crownover, who has raced harness horses continuously for over 30 years, and trained by Steve Carter.

Chance I Might (Page) and Dibs (Jim Pantaleano) shadowed the winner throughout but couldn't get closer than 2-1/2 lengths at the wire.   Dr. Jerry Maloon Stable owns Friskie Adam, who now has six career victories. He was broke and campaigned in his freshman campaign by the late Sam 'Chip' Noble, and has been turned over to veteran conditioner Dan Ater for his sophomore season.   The fastest horse in the short three-month history of Miami Valley Raceway is now Justified, who scorched the highly-acclaimed five-eighths mile oval in 1:51.1.
