Driver Sylvain Filion captured two of the three $70,000 Ontario Sires Stakes Gold Series events for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings featured on Saturday night's card at Mohawk Racetrack while Preferred pacer State Treasurer equalled the fastest mile on Canadian soil so far this year.
Boomboom Ballykeel, who won the 2013 Metro Pace at Mohawk, zoomed to a 1:50.3 effort in the first division, giving him his second OSS Gold victory of the season. With driver Sylvain Filion at the lines, Boomboom Ballykeel followed from the pocket while Three Of Clubs (Doug McNair) chopped out fractions of :26.3, :55.1, and 1:23.3. Filion sent his charge on the attack in the stretch and he collared the pacesetter before pulling clear to win by a length. Three Of Clubs held second and Hunch Man (Mike Saftic) came home in third.
