There was a strong "French Connection" at Saratoga back in those days, JP Morel, Gilles Filion, Bert Belanger, Andre Lareau, Yves Breton, Serge Perras
Don't forget Claude Bourgeois !

Those were very good racing days.  No exotic betting... WPS and DD only.  The best were:  JP Morel, Percy Davis, Don Bromley, Del Mactavish Sr (remember RWS?), Harold Story, Bert Balanger, Kim Crawford, Bill O'donnell was there for a bit (I remember 6 or 7 wins one night) and who could forget Zeke Parker back then!!! Some of the other names I remember:  Hoover, Nazarian, Richardson, Mongeon, etc.  Days long gone and good racing with it.

Don Bromley used to prep horses up here for John Chapman and Carl LaBombard used to do the same for Norman Dauplaise.

Don Garrow from Plattsburgh. An excellent horseman years ahead of his time. Taken down by major health issues.
