"He won the Triple Crown of Trotting, which is very prestigious, he's Trotter of the Year in the U.S., and I think he gave a little faith back to a lot of people that a small stable can still come up with one of these kinds of horses."

Trot Insider caught up with trainer Mike Keeling for his reaction on Marion Marauder being named Canada’s Three-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year and an update on the Triple Crown champion at the 2016 O'Brien Awards Black Tie Gala on Saturday, Jan. 28 in Mississauga, Ont.

Marion Marauder was a winner of 10 of 15 starts and became the ninth Trotting Triple Crown winner by sweeping the Hambletonian, Yonkers Trot and Kentucky Futurity. The son of Muscle Hill also won the Goodtimes Stakes and a division of the Stanley Dancer Memorial en route to a season in which he amassed more than $1.5 million in purses, topping the North American earnings charts for all trotters.
