Elizabeth Lane made it a clean sweep in the eliminations of the Closing Bell, winning her third straight in the series for 3- and 4-year-old filly and mare trotters on Thursday at The Meadows.

Trainer-driver Doug Snyder hustled Elizabeth Lane to the pocket, where she enjoyed a golden trip behind Wild Nordic. The 4-year-old daughter of SJ\'s Caviar-Braker Lane blew by in the lane, scoring by a widening 4 3/4 lengths in 1:58.1. KT Attitude closed for second while Wild Nordic saved show. Snyder owns Elizabeth Lane with Shaffer Standardbreds.

Graceful Sister, Fancy Wine and Cameron Chip also won $12,000 series divisions. The Closing Bell final for approximately $30,000 is set for next Thursday, March 5.

In the $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace, Spring Break and Mike Wilder sailed to a front-end victory in 1:53.4, 1 1/4 lengths better than Niabunny. Jans Luck was a rallying third. Dan Altmeyer trains Spring Break, a 5-year-old daughter of Dream Away-Siobhan who has won four of seven starts this year, for Joann and Joe Thomson. (The Meadows)
