In 2016,Trotter of the Year MarionMarauder won the Triple

Crown by about three feet ? a head and two noses.He?snot a

horse to go to the lead before he hasto,and he doesn?t win

in spectacular fashion.

But nobody ismore determined to get past everyhorse in

front of him,and nobodydigsin harder late,thanMarion

Marauder, the son of Muscle Hill? Spellbound Hanover who

won by an uncharacteristicallylargemargin ? a half-length

? in the HambletonianMaturity,covering 1 1/8 milesin


Themare CelebrityEventsywasawayswiftly, then yielded

toWarrawee Roo,whose connectionswent game and

supplemented himfor $50,000 after finishing a

hard-charging second in the Graduate Final.The fractions

were :27.1, :56,1:24.1,and 1:51.3 asWarrawee Roo and driver

Dan Dube appeared to be doing everything right ? still

having the lead inmidstretch.

But then,without much asking fromdriver Scott Zeron,

MarionMarauder,who had been first-over before the far turn,

reached down to the spot where championsfindmore and

produced it,shifting to a higher gear and dashing the

pacesetter?shopes.The late-flying CufflinkHanover,a 1:51.1

winner two startsback,wasflying late towin a l-o-n-g photo

overWarrawee Roo,whose connections(the Determination

group that won with Emoticon Hanover)mademoneyon the

race ? third wasworth $55,050 against their $50,000

supplement fee.MarionMarauder,of course,made a bit more

money? in fact, trainer PaulaWellwood and owners Jean

Wellwood and Devin Keeling saw the Marauder become the

richest Triple Crown winner ever, trot or pace,bumping his

bankroll to $2,139,235.

After the race,Zeron acted just like a kid in a candyshop.

?You can grindwith him,because you know he won?t get

weak on you at the end.He likesto race at a target in front

of him.And if anything,he?sgot more drive this year at four

than last year.?
