Larry Rivelli (born Jan. 15, 1971 in Chicago) comes from a racing family that included his grandfather Pete DiVito and his uncle Jimmy DiVito. A football player through high school and college, Larry knew he was too small to make it in the NFL. He went to work for his uncle Jimmy and also sold cars for a time. Going out on his own in 1999, Larry saddled his first winner that year at Prairie Meadows in Iowa and has always hit with a high percentage. He has a strong eye for finding talent in the claiming ranks. One such converted claimer was Nicole's Dream, who went on to win multiple graded stakes as a turf sprinter. Larry won his first Arlington Park training title in 2011.
