Timesareachanging overcame a tough first-over trip to capture the $350,350 Coors Delvin Miller Adios final heat in a world record 1:49.3. Ron Pierce drove the 3-year-old gelding to the victory, which came shortly after winning his elim in 1:50.



Georgia Pacific won the opening Adios elim for driver Brian Sears in 1:50, which at the time established a new world record and track mark for sophomore pacing geldings. Driven To Win finished three-quarters of a length behind in second, with Western Terror rounding out the top three finishers returning for the final..



Basil Hanover sprung a 33-1 upset in the second Adios elim as Mike Wilder directed the Dan Altmeyer-trained gelding to the victory. Geartogear and Spirit Of A Shark finished second and third, respectively.



Timesareachanging, who finished second as the favorite in last month's $1 million Meadowlands Pace, won the third elimination, utlizing the driving services for the first time of Pierce. Pierce won his first-ever Meadowlands driving title at the recently-completed meet. Pierce guided his charge to a 1:50 victory, which at the time equaled Georgia Pacific's world record time. Harry Hornet and The Preacher Pan finished second and third, respectively.



In the hotly-contested final, Georgia Pacific had the lead around the final turn but had to battle the first-over Timesareaching. Down the stretch Timesareachanging took command and held on for the victory. Georgia Pacific just held for second over a late-charging Driven To Win, with Basil Hanover fourth.



Trained by Brett Pelling for Daviid and Terry Brooks' Perfect World Enterprises, Timesareachanging is a son of Cam's Card Shark.
