Harness Racing Has Rich History INDIANAPOLIS, ^ND— Harness racing, which will begin a three-day four-session stand at the Indiana State Fair Augi^t 23, has a rich history. Racing involving harnessed horses was a feature of the early Greek Olympic Games. The sport not only is still growing but it is one of the nation’s most important spectator offerings. Here argisome notes from the chronicles of a sport that was welcome in Grandpa’s day and is still welcome wherever the drumming hoofbeats of the trotters and pacers are heard: First recorded mile under three minutes by a standardbred was registered in 1806 by a gelding named Yankee. Most trotting races in the 19th centurey were conducted with horses urged on by riders rather than drivers. First two-minute mile was by a pacer named Star Pointer in 1897. Six years later Lou Dillon became the first trotter to break the two-minute barrier. The mobile starting gate, which revolutionized the sport by doing away with tiresome “open” scoring, was introduced in 1938 by a man named Steve Phillips, who lived in Xenia, O. The United States Trotting Association, parent body of the sport, was formed the same year and superseded a number of earlier associations. More than 7,200 different color combinations for horse race driving jackets are on file in the USTA color registration department, which, of course, n\akes a tough job even tougher for the track announcer On a half-mile track, a horse that is “parked out”, or races on the outside through the entire mile is forced to cover nearly 63 feet more than the horse that is on the inside of him. Fastest harness mile ever driven by a lady driver was the l:Sev^ time trial that Miss Alma Sheppard scored with the trotter Dean Hanover in 1937 at Lexington, Ky. The harness racing world record for the half mile still is 55% seconds, pacing by Directum I at Syracuse, N.Y., in 1916. This speed, if carried for a mile, would produce a l:5V/z clocking, considerably below the world record. The Stephen Foster song, “Clamptown Races”, was written about the bob-tailed trotter Flora Temple. The 1973 State Fair program will offer afternoon and night racing Thursday, Aug. 23 and afternoon racing Aug. 24 and 25. Two premier races, the Fox Stake for two-year-old pacers and the new free-for-all Single G Pace Stake, all scheduled for Saturday afternoon,Aug. 25. The 1973 ’program wi!l consist of a blend of Grand Circuit and Indiana racing. Tickets are on sale at the Indiana State Fair Administration Building.

Finals at Sunday, 7 p.m. Aaron Belts Ho. 699 Hank Aaron clainns he's undaunted by all the pressure surrounding his chase of Babe Ruth's career home run record but the Atlanta slugger appears successful in unnerving a few opposing managers. Aaron slammed his 699th career home run Friday night to move within 15 homers of Ruth's career mark as the Braves dropped a 64 decision to the Philadelphia Phillies. Bill Robinson leaped above the right field fence with two out in this ninth inning to rob Dusty Baker of a game-tying two-run homer with Aaron on first base after the Phillies had pitched carefully around Aaron. Aaron hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to highlight a four-run rally. It was the 26th homer of the season for Aaron, who bounced out and walked in his two previous at-bats. The 39-year (rid Aaron needs only one more homer to become the second player ever to reach the 700 figure. .    ^ Phillies^ manager Danny )roei Ozark Scarce to Aaron at frame 3-2 pitch. red reli^^r Mac :e no chances with plate in the final Aaron walked on a Dick Ruthven was brought on to face Baker, the hottest hitter in the Atlanta lineiQ). Baker lined a deep fly that Robinson speared high above the fence with a perfectly timed leap. “It was the greatest game-ending catch I've ever seen,” said Braves' dbach Connie Ryan. Ozark’s decision to give Aaron nothing good to hit was greeted with boos by the 9,031 fans at the game. Aaron's ninth inning at-bat provided the first opportunity for fans to try and catch his 700th homer. Many fans ran into the left field stands in the hope of retrieving the ball and collecting the $700 reward the dub is offering. In other National League action, Cincinnati topped Montreal 4-0, Houston stopped New York 62, San Francisco edged Chicago 5-4, Pittsburgh won 5-4 in 10 and 7-0 over San Diego and Los Angeles nipped St. Louis in 15 4-3. Rader's 2 Homers Doug Rader drove in three runs with two homers to lead Houston past New York. Rader gave the Astros a 1-0 lead with a homer in the second inning and capped a three-run rally in the sixth with his 15th homer, a two-run blast that put Houston ahead 4-2. Osar Cedeno accounted for Houston’s final runs with a two-run homer in the eighth. Rennie Stennett collected seven hits and drove in four runs in the doubleheader, including a 10th inning game-^ winning homer in the opener, as Pittsburgh swept San Diego. Manny Sanguillen singled home a Pirate run in the third inning of the nightcap before Stennett hit his seventh homer. In the opener, Willie Stargell* blasted a two-run homer—his 28th—and A1 Oliver drove in two runs. Stennett hit the game-winning homer with one out in the 10th oif Mike Caldwell to decide the game.
