OKLAHOMA CITY - Owner Coby Tresner of Chicago and trainer Allen Milligan claimed Marbleton out of his last race, a win, at Remington Park on Nov. 6 for just $7,500. Saturday night, he moved up to a $29,900 allowance feature over the turf to win, affirming the confidence his connections had in him.

Ridden by Martin Escobar, Marbleton ran in the second half of the 12-horse field for the first part of the 1-1/16 miles race. Midway through the final turn he began his bid for the front, battling with a very game King Georgie. A 4-year-old gelding, Marbleton managed to win by a neck over his stretch rival, covering the distance over the firm turf in 1:45.44. Clock was flying at the end to gain third while Turbo Kris was fourth.

Leaving the starting gate at 9-1 odds, Marbleton paid $21.60 to win, $9.80 to place and $6.60 to show. King Georgie paid $29.20 to place and $10.60 to show. Clock returned $7.40 to show.

The exotic wagers paid extremely well in the feature with the 10-cent superfecta (Nos. 1-2-3-7) worth a season-high $8,726.25. The exacta (Nos.1-2) paid $411.80 with the quinella (Nos.1-2) returning $818.20. The trifecta (Nos.1-2-3) paid $2,617.

Marbleton paid his new connections back quickly for their claim earlier in the month, earning $17,646 for his first turf win on Saturday. A Kentucky-bred gelding by Theatrical (Ire) from the Montbrook mare Fort Lauderdale, Marbleton won his third race of the Remington Park season and his fourth overall. He has now made $40,396 in his 13-race career.

Jockey Quincy Hamilton rode three winners Saturday night starting with Backstage Kirby ($7.40 to win) in the second race. His hat trick continued with Dr T Hudson ($3.60) in the fourth race and concluded with Victory Touch ($6) in the eighth.

Hamilton moves into second-place in the jockey standings with 42 wins, 15 behind the colony leader Luis Quinonez.

Doors open Sunday at 10 a.m. for simulcast racing and casino gaming. Remington Park's nine-race live program starts at 1:30 p.m.
