EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- After three decades of trying, the Wellwood family finally won the Hambletonian.Marion Marauder held off Southwind Frank at the wire Saturday to capture the $1 million Hambletonian and make Paula Wellwood the second female trainer to win trottings biggest race at the Meadowlands.It wasnt only a win for Paula Wellwood. Her mother, Marion, and Paulas son, Devin, own the son of Muscle Hill. Her father, the late Hall of Famer Bill Wellwood, tried nine times to win this race for 3-year-olds, racing in the first Hambletonian at the Meadowlands in 1981.It means the world, Paula Wellwood said of winning. It was my fathers dream and its been my mother and my dream. We have tried. This is our third horse in it. Had some luck. Thought we had some luck with Laddie in finishing third to Donato Hanover (2007). We were excited beyond excited. Then this horse came along. You dare to dream.The dream came true because Meadowlands leading driver Scott Zeron gave Marion Marauder a perfect trip in winning by a nose over of last years 2-year-old champion and the pre-race favorite.Zeron moved Marion Marauder past Bar Hopping, the first elimination winner, at the top of the stretch and appeared to be in command until Yannick Gingras moved Southwind Frank along the inside and just missed for the second straight year.Gingras finished second with Mission Brief in 2014.I cant believe it, said the 27-year-old Zeron, who became the second youngest driver to win the Hambletonian. I tried to get the jump on everyone. My horse was strong coming first up and I wanted to get a good two or three length cushion on the field, but I know my horse better, I should have waited to pull the trigger because sometimes when he gets clear of them, hell wander. He was just not paying attention but he stuck his nose out and he got there.Tom Haughton was 25 when he won with Speed Bowl in 1982.Marion Marauder, who edged Southwind Frank in the second elimination for the final, trotted the mile in 1:51.4 in winning for the sixth time in seven starts this year. The bay colt, who won only once in 13 starts last year, paid $7, $3.40 and $3.The difference was he grew a bit, got bigger and stronger, but the real difference was he learned how to win, Paula Wellwood said.Southwind Frank returned $3.80 and $3, and Sutton finished third and paid $6.60.Bar Hopping, who was looking to five trainer Jimmy Takter his third straight Hambletonian win and record-tying fifth overall, faded to fifth.Takter and Gingras combined to win their third straight Hambletonian Oaks when All The Time ($9.20) closed in the stretch to catch pacesetter Caprice Hill.It was the sixth win in the Oaks for Takter, tying Jan Johnson for most wins by a trainer in the race for 3-year-old trotting filliesAll The Time, who had finished second in her last two starts, took the lead in the stretch and was almost four lengths in front in winning fourth time in seven starts this year. The winning time was a lifetime best of 1:52.1.On the Hambletonian undercard: What The Hill ($18.60) won the $294,450 Peter Haughton Memorial for 2-year-old colts and geldings; Ariana G ($3.20) took the $306,500 Jim Doherty Memorial for 2-year-old fillies; Meadowlands Pace winner Control The Moment ($3.20) won the $320,000 Cane, the opening leg of pacings Triple Crown for 3-year-olds; Shamballa ($19.80) won the $225,550 US Pacing Championship; Lady Shadow ($3.80) won the $235,950 Lady Liberty. Destockage Air Max Pas Cher . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Air Max France Pas Cher . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. http://www.airmaxpaschersite.fr/basket-air-max-720-outlet.html . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court. Nike Air Max Plus France . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. Air Max 720 Moins Cher . Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season. J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds. College basketball teams are allowed to travel internationally during the summer once every four years. More important than the games, which have wildly varying degrees of competition, coaches covet the 10 days of practice that come with it.The trips can be eye-openers for players being exposed to different cultures off the court and getting used to new teammates on it. Heres a look at how select major college teams fared on their foreign tours and how it might impact the season ahead:Villanova Wildcats (traveled to Spain) What we learned: Theres no defending champs mantra serving as Villanovas motivation, but Josh Hart still played like hes still hungry to accomplish more. Against the best competition, which featured pros from the top two divisions of the Spanish league, Hart delivered 27 points and 13 rebounds and coach Jay Wright deemed him the best player on the court.Keep an eye on: Senior forward Darryl Reynolds did not make the trip because of a bruised sternum. Starting in his place was Fordham transfer Eric Paschall, who was the 2015 Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year. Paschall will be a key part of the frontcourt rotation. The only area of concern was turnovers, where Nova not only misses Ryan Arcidiacono but forward Daniel Ochefu, who helped break presses.Virginia Cavaliers (Spain) What we learned: Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett aimed to see the newcomers play. He rested three scholarship players in each of their five games; that included probable starters London Perrantes and Isaiah Wilkins for two games each. Freshman Kyle Guy, who averaged 10.3 points, is used to being an alpha male on the court, but deferred to Perrantes experience.Keep an eye on: Austin Nichols, who sat out last season as a transfer from Memphis, led the Wahoos with 13 points per game and his 5.8 rebounds were second on the team behind redshirt freshman Mamadi Diakites 6.3 boards.Washington Huskies (Australia, New Zealand) What we learned: Guard Markelle Fultz is as advertised. The freshman, who is already projected as a potential top-five pick in the 2017 NBA draft, led the team in scoring (21.2 PPG) and assists (4.6 APG) during the tour and was second in rebounding (6.8 RPG) over five games.Keep an eye on: The remaining members of the Class of 2015 all seemed poised to make a big leap from freshmen reserves to key contributors as sophomores. Forward Dominic Greens could be the most dramatic improvement offensively. Noah Dickerson asserted himself as the Huskies inside presence, averaging 10.6 points and 11.4 rebounds.Purdue Boilermakers (Spain) What we learned: Not too much has changed from last season, even with the loss of center A.J. Hammons. The Boilermakers strength will still be in the frontcourt. Their questions will still come with how well the guards play. Sophomore forward Caleb Swanigan appears poised to emerge as a leader.Keep an eye on: Freshman shooting guard Carsen Edwards was a pleasant surprise with how fast he got acclimated offensively, scoring 53 points in his first 52 minutes of play over the course of three games.?Arkansas Razorbacks (Spain) What we learned:?Mike Anderson has built an athletic and fast roster that will keep pace with his frenetic style. The Razorbacks senior trio of Dusty Hannahs, Moses Kingsley and Manuale Watkins is as good as any in the nation.Keep an eye on: Freshman C.J. Jones adds another potential 40 percent 3-point shooter to the lineup with Hannahs. Freshman Adrio Bailey has hops; its only a matter of time before hes posterizing an opponent on a SportCenter highlight.Wake Forest Demon Deacons (Bahamas) What we learned: The Deacons enter the season desperately needing an inside presence to emerge. Forward Dinos Mitoglou did not play. John Collins did his best to look like the guy, averaging 11.3 points. Graduate transfer Austin Arians, a 6-foot-6 forward who played at Milwaukee, introduced himself to the lineup as a key newcomer. He averaged 12.6 points in three games.Keep an eye on: Guard Keyshawn Woods, who sat out last season after transferring from Charlotte, will have a chance to make an early impact. Woods 14.3-point average was second to sophomore Bryant Crawford?(15 PPG).South Carolina Gamecocks (Costa Rica) What we learned: The Gamecocks played just two games -- both against the Costa Rican national team -- and had only seven scholarship players. It led coach Frank Martin to do a lot of experimenting, both with lineups and defensive schemes. Junior college transfer Hassani Gravett and freshman Maik-Kalev Kotsar were the only two of the Gamecocks eight newcomers to play.Keep an eye on: The Gamecocks will be guard-heavy, led by seniors Sindarius Thornwell and Duane Notice. Before leaving on the trip, Martin called his post players more athletes than basketball players. Thats why the 6-10 Kotsars performance was a promising sign.Dayton Flyers (Spain) What we learned: The Flyers didnt take their full allotment of 10 practices before heading overseas.dddddddddddd That didnt seem to affect forward Josh Cunningham, who sat out last season after transferring from Bradley. Cunningham was a physical presence inside and showed no signs of rust with senior forward Kendall Pollard still out, rehabbing wrist and knee injuries.Keep an eye on: Daytons sophomore trio of guard John Crosby and forwards Sam Miller and Ryan Mikesell?showed some good signs, but also some inconsistencies. Daytons success as a team will hinge on them providing quality depth.Wichita State Shockers (Canada) What we learned: We already knew Gregg Marshall was the type of coach who will fight for his guys. We didnt need the demonstration. The Shockers dont have a scholarship senior on the roster, so their loss to Canadian powerhouse Carleton University to start the tour should come as no surprise. If anything it was an early signal that the post-Fred VanVleet and Ron Baker era will have a transition period.Keep an eye on: Forward Darral Willis Jr. looked like a perfect fit for the rotation with his ability to run the floor and physical presence. Junior college transfer Daishon Smith has the physical tools but faces a steep learning curve trying to play point guard in Marshalls system.Georgia Bulldogs (Spain) What we learned: The competition wasnt the greatest, so coach Mark Fox took a bit of a different approach for the Dawgs. He allowed each of his three assistant coaches to be the head coach for a game on the trip. Forwards Yante Maten and Derek Ogbeide arguably had the best performances.Keep an eye on: Guard Juwan Parker returned to the lineup after missing all of last season with an Achilles injury. Freshmen guards Tyree Crump and Jordan Harris each showed signs that they can contribute -- and theyll have to in a depleted backcourt rotation.UNLV Runnin Rebels (Bahamas) What we learned: Its a rebuilding year for first-year coach Marvin Menzies. The Runnin Rebels lost their first game to a University of Toronto team that Wake Forest beat by 21. Only three players remain from last years roster, so expect an extended period for the newcomers to get acclimated.Keep an eye on: UNLV already shares the ball well, as three different players led the team in scoring. Uche Ofoegbu, Christian Jones and Kris Clyburn -- all transfers playing their first year for the Rebels -- will assume big roles in the lineup. Jones led the team with 13.0 rebounds per game and also chipped in 15.6 points per game.Kansas State Wildcats (Italy, Switzerland) What we learned: K-State is very much a work in progress, going 3-2 on its tour. Sophomore forward Dean Wade?played through pain after taking a blow to the head that required stitches in the third of five games on tour. He still led the Wildcats with 6.2 rebounds per game and was second in scoring at (9.6 PPG).Keep an eye on: Freshman Xavier Sneed only started one of the five games played, but led the Wildcats in scoring at 10.4 points per game. Bruce Weber was so encouraged by the play of his freshmen, he started Sneed, Brian Patrick and Isaiah Maurice in the final game.Missouri Tigers (Italy) What we learned: The NCAA had a team like this in mind in allowing for foreign trips, as the Tigers welcome in five freshmen. Of the newcomers, forward Willie Jackson appears to be the most ready to compete early. Jackson led the Tigers with 9.5 rebounds per game and twice recorded double-doubles.Keep an eye on: Sophomore guard Terrence Phillips might be the most complete player on the team. He averaged 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists in the four games they played.George Washington Colonials (Japan) What we learned: Junior guard Yuta Watanabe played in his native Japan for the first time in three years. His homecoming provided something -- hell take a more active role in the Colonials offense this season after averaging 8.4 points as a sophomore. Leading scorer Tyler Cavanaugh will still be their primary option.Keep an eye on: Sophomore guard Jordan Roland played a bit role in every game last season, but seems ready to break out. Hes much more aggressive offensively and confident about displaying his midrange game.Washington State Cougars (Italy) What we learned: Coach Ernie Kent likes for his teams to play fast, but they will have to learn how to slow it down a bit when leading the game. The Cougars were 3-2 on their trip, with both losses coming after losing leads in the fourth quarter. (That included a 29-point halftime lead against Loca Ubriaca that ended in a 114-109 overtime loss.)Keep an eye on: Josh Hawkinson and Ike Iroegbu, the leading scorers from last season, will again power the Cougars. Freshman Malachi Flynn, who had more than seven assists in three of the five games, looks to be the key newcomer. ' ' '
