Leading Driver Aaron Merriman posted another big night at Northfield Park on Saturday winning 10 times (from 12 drives) on the 16-race program.
Merriman's monster night tied the Northfield record for the most wins on a single card. That record was set in 1999 by Walter Case Jr.
Merriman's triumphs were with The Lion Sleeps ($3.60) in race five, St Lads Maggie Mae ($3.60) in race six, Heythere Lisamarie ($2.10) in race seven, Designed To See ($8.60) in race eight, Nutmegs Yankee ($3.60) in race 10, It's Gest Me ($4.20) in race 11, Godiva Seelster ($7.00) in race 12, Red ($16.40) in race 13, Mayabelle ($3.40) in race 15 and Cookies Empire ($6.20) in race 16.
Merriman was the leading driver in North America in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and is leading by more than 50 wins so far this year.
Merriman has been driving since 1997 and has piloted 11,294 career wins and is approaching $75 million in purse earnings.
Success over the Flying Turns is nothing new to Merriman. He has more wins than any other driver in Northfield Park’s history. (with files from Northfield Park)
