Trainer Jim Marino collected four victories on the Sunday, April 28 card at Fraser Downs, with one of his wins coming as Boiling Oar wired his competition in the $12,000 Open Pace.

Boiling Oar barreled to a two-length lead moving to the first quarter in :27.1 and slowed the pace slightly while maintaining that margin to a :55.4 half. Odds-on favourite Iwontdothatagain, racing fourth, tipped first over heading to the backstretch and ranged to within a length of control by a 1:23.4 third quarter. Iwontdothatagain dug into the leader through the stretch but finished three-quarter lengths behind in the 1:51.1 mile but seven lengths ahead of Buddys Hope chasing in third.

A four-year-old gelding by Shadow Play, Boiling Oar won his fourth race from 10 starts this season and his 10th from 23 overall, earning $141,049. David Hudon drove the $10.00 for owner J J J Stables.

Marino's grand slam started earlier in the card when Cool Cowboy ($7.60) and Wrangler Cash swept the top two spots in a $9,300 conditioned pace, racing first and second around the track to a 1:52.2 mile. Wadie ($4.60) and Cantbeatacheetah ($5.30) gave Marino the remainder of his wins, with Wadie winning a $7,500 maiden claiming pace in 1:59.3 and Cantbeatacheetah sweeping first over to a 1:56 win in a $3,700 conditioned claiming pace.
