Jim Marino won the Keith Linton Memorial

The lightly raced sophomore pacer Premium Stock took advantage of the passing lane to win his first stake event off a pocket trip on Sunday afternoon at Fraser Downs in the $15,000 Keith Linton Memorial.

Starting from post two, the Jim Marino-trained and driven Premium Stock followed inside starter Great Quote and Serge Masse for most of the mile through fractions of :27, :57.4 and 1:25.3. Favourite Need You So Bad and Fraser's leading trainer/driver Bill Davis stalked the leader first over, but could only make it within a length of Great Quote turning for home. Great Quote opened up a pair of lengths at the top of the stretch, but Premium Stock wore him down in a tight finish for the 1:56 victory. Hosisahos and Travis Bowman prevailed in a photo for third over Need You So Bad one and three-quarter lengths behind.

Premium Stock paid $14.70 to win as the 6-1 third choice in the field scratched down to six.
