Gene Cox's Hot Dam Bam A Lam, a homebred 4-year-old son of Captain Courage, outran his 17-1 odds to win Saturday's $75,000 Refrigerator Stakes (G1) at Lone Star Park.

Ridden by John Hamilton, Hot Dam Bam A Lam covered 440 yards in :21.512 while defeating 8-5 favorite Political Attraction by a half of a length. Trey Ellis prepped the black gelding.

Hot Dam Bam A Lam was making his first-ever start at Lone Star Park, and he was stretching out in distance off of his neck victory in the 350-yard, $24,850 Esplanade Stakes at Fair Grounds Racecourse in New Orleans. The Oklahoma-bred gelding has won six of 16 outs, and the $42,750 winner's share of the purse from his second career stakes victory increased his bankroll to $181,113.

Stone Cold Leader, Rock About It, Hes Limitless, Rarin, Papaws Paint, Vallerro, and Strykr Force completed the order of finish.
