Speed Mcqueen and driver Tom Hamm took full advantage of the pole position to win Sunday's $50,000 Kin Pace Final for three-year-old pacing fillies at Clinton Raceway.

The Rambaran homebred, who was second in last Sunday's elimination, rolled right to the top and successfully sliced out fractions of :29.3, :59.3 and 1:29 before kicking out a :28.1 closing quarter en route to the 1:57.1 score.

Southwind Morning (Duke Sugg), who enjoyed a pocket trip every step of the way, was second best in the eight-filly affair. Tennessee Starlit (Trevor Henry) recovered from an early miscue to round out the top three.

Speed Mcqueen, who is owned and trained by Bill Hamm of West Lorne, Ontario, has put together a 4-6-4 record in her first 21 starts of the season. She has stashed away earnings in excess of $74,000 this season and over $91,000 in her career.

In other Sunday afternoon action, Kelly Case and Tracy Procop picked up wins in the pair of divisions of the Mildred Williams Driving Series.

Case guided Eternal Isle to a 2:01.1 victory over runner-up Net Eagle (Elizabeth Jansen) and third-place finisher Canadian Trooper (Angie Matthews).

Procop went down the road with Tymal Mercedes in a time of 2:00 in the other division. Miszinntheriggin (Gro Formia) was second best and Dalona Killean (Kris Hie) finished third.

The next stop for the Mildred Williams Driving Series is Tioga Downs on July 12th.
