A milestone at the Meadowlands, as harness driver Dave Miller becomes the youngest ever to win 9,000 races. The 44-year-old drove Redstone Ruckus to victory in Sunday's sixth race at the track in East Rutherford. He now ranks 11th on the all-time wins list and is fifth on the earnings list with $121 million in career purses.

"It's something I'm very proud of. It's a great accomplishment," the Ohio native said. "Those wins don't come easy. I've been very fortunate."

Miller was named Driver of the Year by the U.S. Harness Writers Association in 2003, the same year he won pacing's Triple Crown with No Pan Intended.
