Three-time U.S. Amateur Driver of the Year, Bobby Krivelin, made short work of the second division of the NAADA Trotting Series with Gimme The Loot when they coasted to an easy three-length triumph in a time of 2:03.1 at Freehold Raceway on Friday afternoon, March 21.

For the 62-year-old food purveyor, it marked his 154th amateur driving victory. With this triumph, Krivelin, who also has a few classic race victories on his resume, ran his career earnings to over $1.32 million.

In today’s contest, Krivelin left softly from the five-hole and found third position along the pylons for his trotter as Get Packin and Bob Hechkoff showed the way by the quarter in :29.1 and the half in 1:02.

Once the field straightened up the backside the second time around, Krivelin moved Gimme The Loot to the lead as they passed the third stanza in 1:32.3 and then cruised home an easy winner. Hardrockinjessica came from fifth at the three-quarters to finish second while Sams Honeybee garnered the show dough for owner/driver Tony Verruso.

Gimme The Loot is now two-for-two this year. The nine-year-old altered son of Credit Winner is owned by Alessandro Spano and Marcello Spano and trained by the former. He paid $4.20 for win.

The NAADA trotting Series returns to Yonkers Raceway on Thursday, March 27, where David Glasser and Joe Faraldo were each victorious on March 6.
