EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Harness racing driver Yannick Gingras was the go-to guy Saturday night at the Meadowlands, winning four times on the 14-race card.

The 2017 United States Harness Writers Association Driver of the Year scored in the first race with 6-5 favorite P H Kenny, who had lost no fewer than 37 straight heading into the night. The son of Lis Mara took the $15,000 claiming pace in 1:53 in powerful, two-move fashion.

Next up was 9-5 chance Abbijade Hanover in the sixth race fillies and mares conditioned pace. The winner overcame the strong anti-speed track bias by taking the point at the half and holding on in a game performance in 1:53.2.

Gingras took the seventh, a mid-range conditioned pace, with Cheyenne Seeber. Trapped at the rail at the top of the stretch, Gingras weaved the son of Rocknroll Hanover through the field to score in 1:52.2 at odds of 8-1.

"The Green Hornet" scored his fourth of the night as he fired Six Gun to victory in the 11th race conditioned pace in 1:53.4. The 10-1 chance paid $23.80 to win.

A LITTLE MORE: Driver Bill Mann and trainer Al Annunziata put smiles on their fans' faces, scoring twice at a nice price. Lachie Maguire N took the 10th race and paid $58.00, then, two races later, Don'tcallmefrancis was in the winner's circle after scoring at 9-1. ... The Pick 5 pool, which had a total wager of $45,432, returned $9,653.90 to those smart enough to have the winning combination of 6-6-4-7-3. ... All-source wagering totaled $2,568,853. ... After failing to result in a single-ticket winner, the 20 Cent Jackpot Super High Five carryover swelled to $68,553.35. ... Racing resumes at the Meadowlands Friday at 6:35 p.m.
