Eric Carlson wowed Northville Downs harness racing fans on Saturday night (March 5), winning 8 of the night's 15 races. Challenging track conditions, including blinding snow at times, didn't faze Carlson who won the fifth (Vt`s Gold Key), sixth (Armbro Billow), 7th (Abes Little Blacky), 8th (Suit Yourself), 10th (Dr Major), 11th (Starry Lady), 13th (Fully Loaded Gun), and 14th (Irish Toddy).
He managed to earn a check in every race except one--his horse was scratched from the 15th.
Not surprisingly, Carlson's performance helped him to sail into the leading Northville driver spot over the weekend.
Of course, he's no stranger to dominating Michigan race cards. On July 24, he picked up 10 wins at Hazel Park Raceway.
