Victor Kirby’s name is well known at Delaware’s Harrington Raceway, where the 43-year-old is currently the top driver.

But at the Meadowlands, his name is not on the tip of regular patron’s tongues. Now, maybe it will be.

With many of the frontline Big M drivers at Mohawk Raceway for a stakes-laden program, Kirby won four times on the Meadowlands 13-race card Saturday night.

Kirby got his night going in the fifth race with Jennys Terror ($13.60 to win, 1:53.1), who scored in the third leg of the Kindergarten Classic for two-year-old pacing fillies. Mister Truth ($6.80, 1:51) took the eighth race before Kirby’s fans made a score with Grave Dancer ($26.80, 1:52) in the 10th. Kirby completed his ‘Grand Slam’ with Show Me Up ($15.40, 1:53) in the 12th.

Cougar Bait ($2.60, 1:52.4) impressed taking one of two division of the Kindergarten Classic for two-year-old colts and geldings on the pace, making an aggressive move to the lead at the three-eighths before registering the win by three-quarters of a length over Northwest Yankee.

Andy Miller won three times on the card, giving him seven winners over the weekend at the Big M.

Racing resumes at the Meadowlands Friday at 7:15 p.m.
