As a result of a meeting earlier this week between trainer Shawn Robinson and management at Woodbine Entertainment Group, Robinson will now race his horses from the backstretch of Mohawk Racetrack. The track has given Robinson stalls for his in-to-go horses that must be on site from draw day to race day.
Neither WEG nor Robinson offered Trot Insider additional comments.
Is racing from the track backstretch an answer for racetracks trying to keep a closer eye on trainers? On Monday, harness racing owner and lawyer Chris Wittstruck wrote an opinion piece with a very similar premise. The contents of that editorial appear here.
