Northfield, Ohio --- Harnesss racing driver Eddie Miller wins again.

The hot-handed youngster scored his fourth victory in seven seasonal starts when he guided Warrior Way to a 1:58.4 triumph in a leg of the Great Lakes Amateur Drivers Association trotting series tonight at Northfield Park. And racing fans are starting to take notice of the youngster's talent.

Tonight Miller had the pole position and the locals sent him away as the 3-5 betting favorite and Miller didn't disappoint. When the wings of the gate folded Miller got away third as Hail To The King and Marion Chupp gunned for command and they had a short lead over Mesmerized (Darrell Rideout) as they passed the first stanza in a swift :28.1.

As the field approached the halfway point trailing horses began to move up so Miller moved off the pylons with sights on the front-end. However, Hail To The King was still strong as they approached the three quarters in 1:29.2. But when they trotted into the final turn he faltered and Warrior Way took command and began to draw clear.

In the deep stretch Miller was the one to beat and no one could as Warrior Way finished a length ahead of fast closing Time Outa Jail (Lonnie Graber). So Wishful with Larry Ferrari at the controls, rallied from far back to finish third.
