Austin Siegelman went into the Friday (April 9) card at Freehold Raceway on a hot streak, having won four races on each of the last three race days. This Friday, he did one better, with five victories.

His biggest victory came in the Preferred Handicap Trot, where he guided Levitation to victory. Coming off a win in the AHDC Amateur Trot, Levitation was the 8-5 favourite in the field of eight. Siegelman sent him to the early lead, but Winneress wrestled back control and cleared to the front just after the opening quarter. Undeterred, Siegelman kept his drive in the pocket, letting Winneress set the pace.

Siegelman's plan worked to perfection. As they turned for home, he angled Levitation off the pylons for clear sailing, and he got by in the last few strides for a half-length victory in 1:57.

Levitation has now won 12 times from 69 career starts, with earnings of more than $177,000. He is owned and trained by Franz Wolf.

Siegelman began his day with a win in race one, scoring on Betziesbookinit for trainer Travion Jones. He took race three on Perseverance for trainer Robert Baggitt Jr. and then won a pair of trainer Mike Kimelman, scoring in race four with Loud Brazilian and race eight on Sweet You.

Siegelman has a comfortable lead in the driver standings, with 74 wins.

Live racing at Freehold continues on Saturday (April 10) with an 11-race card starting at about 12:30 p.m.
