Larry Ferrari got all the marbles on Saturday (April 24) when he won the in the Great Lakes Amateur Drivers Association (GLADA) Series Trot at Northfield Park with Go Go George. Together, they made every pole a winning one in progress to a 1:57.4 win over eight others.

Sent as the second choice from the four-hole in the nine-horse field, Ferrari took advantage of a miscue at the start by favoured Warrior Way and gunned his charge to the lead before a :29.3 first quarter.

With Go Go George on the engine, Ferrari got away with another :29-and-a-piece quarter, and when they rounded the clubhouse turn the second time Ferrari put the pedal to the metal. Go Go George opened daylight on his competitors as they trotted by three-quarters in 1:28.2. Well in command as they headed for home, Ferrari's trotter was strong all the way to the wire.

Lonnie Graber rallied Time Outa Jail from fifth at three-quarters to trot around Ubanji and driver Don Sherman to finish second. Ubanji held on for the show dough.

It was the first winning drive this season for Ferrari, who has been no stranger to the winner's circle in his career. His victory tonight marked the 358th of his career.

Go Go George, a seven-year-old altered son of Neely Dunn, is owned by Kiesha Ferrari and trained by his driver. He paid $8.40 for win.
