Marion Marauder snags Goodtimes final
Marion Marauder swooped in to steal the glory in the $268,000 Goodtimes Trot for local connections when the heavy favourite broke stride coming into the stretch.

A three-year-old son of Muscle Hill out of Spellbound Hanover, Marion Marauder is campaigned by local trainer Mike Keeling and owned by Keeling's son Devin along with Marion Jean Wellwood of Stratford, Ont.

Leaving from mid-field in post five, 3-5 favourite Dayson (Yannick Gingras) worked alongside early leaver Will Take Charge (Paul MacDonell) through a :27.3 first quarter and eventually cleared by the three-eighths mark.

As the popular elimination winner headed to the half in :56.3, driver Scott Zeron edged Marion Marauder out from mid-pack and followed the cover of Tony Soprano (John Campbell), who confronted Dayson on the way to three-quarters in 1:25.

Dayson and Tony Soprano continued to battle into the stretch when the former colt broke stride and Gingras quickly pulled him out of the way into the safety lane. Will Take Charge then came through inside while Marion Marauder rallied off cover as Tony Soprano leveled off down the lane. Blenheim (Chris Christoforou) also weaved in between horses after tracking Marion Marauder's cover.

In the end, Marion Marauder prevailed by half a length in a new lifetime mark of 1:52.4 over Will Take Charge, with Blenheim finishing one length behind in third. Bar Hopping (Tim Tetrick), the second favourite, finished fourth.

Sent postward as the 8-1 third choice on the toteboard after his fourth-place finish in last week's eliminations, Marion Marauder paid $18.40 to win.

"I didn't know what to expect last week," said former WEG driver Zeron, who had driven the colt to runner-up finishes in the William Wellwood Memorial and Breeders Crown last year. "All I remembered from him was how he was at two and he was a little shy behind the gate. I didn't know how much he had matured this year so I was a little cautious with him when I didn't have to be last week.

"I was confident in him so I pushed him out of the gate and I was able to land in a position where I saw John [Campbell] pulling on the outside with a nice horse of [Bob] McIntosh's [Tony Soprano] so I was happy to have that cover and finally be in the right spot -- be within two lengths at that three-quarter pole -- and he delivered."

Marion Maurader is now a three-time winner from 16 starts and just shy of the half-million earnings mark. The Hambletonian eligible will look to continue his winning momentum this summer with some tougher competition on the horizon.

"We beat Dayson today and we're going to have to tackle [divisional champion] Southwind Frank -- he's beaten us every other time -- but if I'm in the right spot, you know, I think I have a great shot."

John Bax, who campaigned the race's namesake and scored an upset victory with another local colt, Hemi Seelster, in last year's edition of the Goodtimes, presented the trophy to the winning connections.
