John Campbell put a little more distance between himself and the field Friday night (May 27) as the leading driver in Meadowlands history steered four winners on the 11-race card.

The Hall of Famer guided Mavens Way to victory in the lone $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes event for three-year-old colt and gelding trotters. After racing on the lead -- and taking pressure virtually every step down the backside from Southwind Flash -- the son of Muscle Hill held off the late-charging 6-5 favuorite Jack Vernon to win by a neck in a lifetime-best 1:51.4 for trainer Ake Svanstedt and co-owners Mal And Janet Burroughs and the T L P Stable. Double L Lindy finished third.

Sent to the gate as the second choice in the wagering, Mavens Way returned $9.80 to his backers.

Campbell also scored with the maiden-breaking Batoutahill ($6.20 to win, 1:55.1) in a $20,000 division of the NJSS for three-year-old trotting fillies, as well as with pair of conditioned pacers, Gweneeee J ($7.00, 1:50.1) and Danish Durango ($5.20, 1:52).

The other NJSS split for three-year-old trotting fillies was won by Southwind Hope ($3.40, 1:54.1) for the husband and wife driver-trainer duo of Andy and Julie Miller.

The late 20-cent Jackpot Super High Five, which has not once had had a single-ticket winner since the start of the current meeting on November 13 of last year, now has a carryover of $234,671.79 heading into the next program. The Meadowlands is back with live racing Saturday at 7:15 p.m. On Sunday morning, The Meadowlands will offer on-site wagering on races nine through 15 from Solvalla, Sweden. The ninth race is the first of two Elitlopp eliminations and has an estimated post time of 9:22 a.m. Doors open at 9 a.m.
