Oak Tree: Carava claims winner


Fiery Trippi, the frontrunning winner of Wednesday's first race for $9,000 to $10,000 claimers, was claimed by Jack Carava for $10,000.

Fiery Trippi raced for owner Rob Correa and trainer Peter Miller for just three races, finishing third, second and first. They claimed the 6-year-old gelding in late August for $10,000.

In Wednesday's race, Fiery Trippi ($3.60) set a slow pace - 24.47 and 48.02 seconds - under jockey Patrick Valenzuela and was never really threatened, winning by 1 3-4 lengths over Marquet Rebel.
