EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — 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 trotting's biggest race at the Meadowlands.

Scott Zeron became the second youngest driver to win the race for 3-year-olds, getting the son of Muscle Hill to the wire a nose ahead of last year's 2-year-old champion and the pre-race favorite.

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 winner, who is owned by the Wellwood family, paid $7, $3.40 and $3.
