Anyone remember any of these events
« on: March 07, 2021, 08:53:54 AM »
I was reading an article by Bob Heyden on HRU earlier..
Were any ploppers witness to any of these events?


8. Walter Case, Jr. and Ben Webster — circa 1985 — racing into the 15 and 16 path near the quarter pole before the judges put a stop to it. Their feud had been percolating and reached a head that night — at public expense.

9. Mike Gagliardi and Rene Poulin whipping each other’s horse in the stretch. Can’t remember the race — it was somewhere around 1982-83. That too was quickly taken care of by the authorities.

10. Walter Case, Jr. winning the 1993 Presidential with Cambest, then leaving. He was on the road driving to Yonkers and the judges were trying to get him back to take his urine test. He never again appeared at the Big M.

11. Disgruntled and soon to be ex-employee sometime around1989 drove the water truck to the finish line and proceeded to dump everything in the tank onto the track during the race card. Several precious minutes passed and Bob Ashelman and crew hurriedly came and put a stop to it. It took a while to clean up and resume racing.
