The wagering public showed Write Me A Song full support on Sunday (July 8) at Clinton Raceway, and, in return, the three-year-old Sportswriter filly supplied her faithful with a convincing, track record victory in the $60,900 final of the Kin Pace.

After having put forth a dominant display in her elimination last weekend, Write Me A Song was hammered down to ten cents on the dollar for the Kin Pace, which capped off Clinton’s 11-race Sunday card.

Write Me A Song, who was bred by Roy Austin (of Port Hope, Ont.), lined up in Post 4. The bay was quickest off of the starting gate and had scooted out to a one and a half-length lead by the time she clicked off the opening station in :28. Katniss S BG (driven by Louis-Philippe Roy) kept tabs on the leader from second.

The Jack Darling trainee remained in command through the second quarter, as pilot Mike Saftic lead Write Me a Song past the half-mile indicator in :56.3.

The action picked up in the third quarter, as Askmysecretary (Doug McNair) came calling first-up from fourth, but it was still Write Me A Song on the engine, as she spun off three quarters in 1:26.2.

Write Me A Song proved to be too tough on the point, as she completed her mile with a :28.1 final quarter. She froze the timer in 1:54.3 and was on top by one and three-quarter lengths when the curtains fell. The win time was a new track record for three-year-old pacing fillies.

Katniss S BG, who sat a two-hole trip through the fractions, hung tough for second. Askmysecretary, whoc had come first up, wound up finishing third, more than five lengths back of the victress. Sunday Afternoon (Travis Henry) and Sweet Toujours (Bob McClure) finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Write Me A Song continues to impress for owner/trainer Jack Darling (of Cambridge, Ont.), who has now seen his $47,000 yearling purchase win seven of her 13 career races and bank over $105,000 in purses. The filly is in the midst of a nice campaign, as she has now won five of her nine seasonal starts, banked more than $80,000 in purses and missed the board just once.

Clinton’s Sunday program also offered quite the undercard, as multiple Ontario Sires Stakes Grassroots divisions and Sharpe’s Feed Series dashes stoked the rest of the afternoon program.
