Robert Krivelin is one of a dozen or so Goshen, NY, residents who spends his mornings training his stable of racehorses at Goshen Historic Track’s half-mile oval. But he is the only one who hops out of a jog cart and into a car to make a congested commute to Jersey City, NJ.

A New York City native who moved to a horse farm in Goshen five years ago, Krivelin runs a full service wholesale food distribution business selling to 1,000 Manhattan restaurants. But the night life he enjoys best may be under the lights at the preeminent track in harness racing, the Meadowlands.

“Goshen is my home track now, but I still think I’m most comfortable at the Meadowlands. I am definitely a better mile-track driver,” admitted the horseman, who trained horses for many years at the East Rutherford, NJ, complex and had the opportunity to learn from the likes of Hall of Famers Jim Doherty and Ray Remmen.

The Meadowlands is where Krivelin, who maintains his amateur driving status, gained national driving notoriety by finishing second in the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks in 2003 with his filly Rapid Rail. The filly went on to earn $275,000 in her career.
