Pilot Aaron Merriman was on fire Tuesday (May 24) at the Meadows, as he cobbled together a six-win performance during the 14-dash program, including a hard-earned victory with Smokinmombo.

Smokinmombo wore down the leader, Anaffairtoremember, and went on to a hard-earned victory in Tuesday’s $22,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at the Meadows.

Stuck with Post 9, Smokinmombo trotted patiently for Merriman until she picked up the live first-over cover of Railee Priti.

When Smokinmombo’s cover faltered before the three-quarters, the four-year-old daughter of Explosive Matter-Horizontal Mombo went three wide briefly before engaging Anaffairtoremember.

Smokinmombo prevailed in 1:55, one and one-quarter lengths better than the rallying UF Lindsay Lou Who. Anaffairtoremember saved show.

Chris Beaver trains Smokinmombo, who extended her career bankroll to $328,902, and owns with Synerco Ventures and James Gallagher.
