Hearing that Greg Merton will not be coming to the ridge as he is choosing to stay in New York........As far as beckwith and Chris Long goes they will probably show up on monday/tuesday......No young Switzer......purs e structure should be good and managment is more focused on locals I think....they canned the 250k trot which did nothing for local horseman which is a wise move......No t-breds in Mass after 2018 and not sure if they have found new location.....Stro narch and richard fields still have interst in mass......who knows...but horsemans casino account should be well funded.....

Without Merton, would Aldrich take over his spot as top catch driver.
Beckwith would probably try to get a bigger foot in...but he is not in the same class as Merton or Aldrich, in controlling a race

And on the subject of "no thorobreds"..in Mass, before the State gives this money to Mass  harness horsemen who have NOT stepped up and bought good horses to race for the good money...they should make sure that schools and hospitals and seniors homes have adequate funding to meet their needs..before they increase purses for $ 3000 and $ 4000 claimers who masquerade as $ 6000 and $ 10,000  claimers.

The Mass  sire stake program is a joke.....

Conditions...bred in Mass, or the Mare stood in Mass in December in the year before she foaled..or she was boarded at Steve Otools  training center...or the trainer raced horses at Plainridge all year, and the mare although bred elsewhere,  is living in Connecticut, and once took a trip in  a truck to Mass

Despite these open conditions, most of the day to day trainers/owners who race at Plainridge did NOT take the opportunity to own or breed  a Mass baby

I dont know I heard Richard fields of suffolk downs committed 60 mil for a new track in mass.....the problem is land and zoning ......carneys spots raynham and brockton have been shot down.....as far as I know........I think still longshot that t-breds back in Mass......Beckwit h and Chris long cant help themselves playing games on the track.......so many abnormal pools when they are together in a race,,,,,,,,,ask any drivers they are calling for each other????so who knows.....could care less about either one of them coming....dont trust either one of them to be honest......maybe Drew will be there and he was lights out on a 5/8 s better than bartlett who can only race on a half mile as thats his comfort zone............s ee what happens

A very thoughtful post

I hope some of the regular Plainridge  owners / trainers read these last 2 pages

The Mass  pre race drug tests could also be stepped up

The trailer parking lot would be a good place to patrol

Wasn't that where they caught John Nason  last year

When the boys from Maine  were there, in numbers, the racing was always better
they don't drive 4 hours each way to drive around the track twice

Shawn Gray was a big asset....always on GO

You are right about Bet with and Long............. both usually have a "plan"

Wish them well....remember Foxboro in it's day.....John Hogan, his father, Bert and Williard Beckwith, Jimmy Doherty, Bob Tisbert, a young Leo Bauer, a crazy Alexander Savran, Peter Blood and the list goes on and on.....it was a great game back then.  Cobra Almhurst took his lifetime mark there of 2:04 and change with Benny "the whip" Webster behind and Bob Farrington brought Rambling Willie by near the end of his career.
You left out Ken Heeney, Bucky Day, Ted Wing, Jim Morrill sr., Billy O spent a couple of meets there too.

I don't think
 enough money bet to make tanking viable.

Tanking a race has little to do with the betting pool. It is a character flaw. These peckerheads have gone dead in every combination of low or high purse, small or large pool. It is just who they are.

Best of luck to all the horsemen and women on the 2018 racing season at Plainridge.
Today is the opener and the weather is miserable.
I’ll be watching and wagering if they race.
19 years and they have come a long way.
Good luck to all that wager!
