 Kiwi reinsman Matthew Williamson is within striking distance of the lead in the World Driver's Championship in Sweden after driving a dead heat winner yesterday. Williamson is just four points behind series leader Ulf Ohlsson after the third day of the championships was held at Fornaboda, a day which included a race for cold bloods. Williamson had a second early before he deadheated in the next race with US rep Yannick Gingras, the man who became so well known to Kiwi harness racing fans as the regular pilot of Lazarus last year. "It was a good day and I think I drove pretty well," said Williamson.  "We are getting up the leader board now and probably have a chance. "But none of my horses for tomorrow seem to be near the top of the market so we will have to drive them well. "It has been a wonderful experience, there are some great people here and I am loving getting to know everybody. And we will keep doing our best for the silver fern." Nine out of the competition's 24 races have now been decided, and the next five races will take place at Sundbyholm racetrack in Eskilstuna.   by Michael Guerin   Leaderboard 1.Ulf Ohlsson (Sweden) – 76.5 2.

On Track Piraten and Erik Adielsson made a three wide bid for the lead at about the :58.4 half and briefly got a nose in front of Creatine. But Takter and Creatine held fast to the lead at the 1:28.1 three-quarters. Bee A Magician and driver Brian Sears unleashed a furious rush at the lead, from about six wide, heading into the final turn at about the 1:57.2 mile mark, but could not make up ground on the leaders. Creatine and Takter worked to hold off the advancing Timoko, while Ohlsson had Papgayo E on the move up the inside. “He came with great power,” said Ohlsson. “I saw Timoko on the outside coming with power, but I knew that I had more. My only concern was Creatine going long enough that we would be able to get through on the rail. If he didn’t last, we might have had a problem, but he lasted. I felt really good the whole way, the tempo in the race was perfect. The horse was feeling good and once we came down the stretch, I could really feel his power.” The rest of the order of finish was 6. Bee A Magician, 7. On Track Piraten, 8. Rod Stewart, 9. Mosaique Face, 10. Natural Herbie. $1 million Yonkers International Trot by Ellen Harvey, Harness Racing Communications
