Harness racing driver Aaron Merriman had a monster night on Saturday (May 4) at Northfield Park by posting eight wins on the 16-race program.

Merriman's triumphs were with Island Of Rock ($3.40) in race two, Mildred's Button ($14.80) in race three, Sweet To See ($3.40) in race five, Touchamatic ($2.40) in race nine, Love Forbidden ($2.40) in race 10, Wendy's Girl ($4.40) in race 13, The Lion Sleeps ($3.80) in race 14 and My Caroline ($2.60) in race 15.

Merriman was the leading driver in North America in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and is leading by over 50 wins so far this year.

Merriman has been driving since 1997 and has since posted 11,266 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's history.

The 20¢ Northfield Single Six (a unique combination Pick-6) has accumulated a $20,232 carryover into Monday’s (May 6) program. 

The Single Six offers a low 14 percent takeout rate and is offered nightly in race nine.

The 20¢ wager is designed to offer handicappers large jackpots by carrying over 50 percent of its nightly pool until it is solved by a unique single ticket.
