We all know Ron Marsh's past history.
My question.
In "todays" racing world, what do you think of him as a driver.
Good tactician?
Good hands?
Does he improve horses?
I'd like to know what people think about Marsh the driver in 2005?

we have used Ronnie very much. He's going to be on carlees conquest tuesday night. Ronnie is one of the best drivers of all time. He is also a gentleman. he has made us a bunch of money and continues to make us money.
If your question about ronnie in 2005 is alluding to diminishing skills as a driver. NO WAY. I grew up watching ronnie with my dad when i was less than 10 years old and he still drives like he used to.
horses dont get cowboyed with ronnie. he always does whats in the best interest of the owner rather than his own pocketbook. With ronnie the horses stay together for a long time.

Ronnie "Boom Boom" Marsh is a nice guy, and an above average driver.  He is the 2nd tier for drivers in Chicago.  I don't think he has lost anything from what he had before.  I don't think he gets the best horses in the world, but I would still rate him as 2nd tier.  He has always drove Parklane Powerful well.

Ronnie drove for me a bunch.

HE WILL ALWAYS BRING BACK SOMETHING TO RACE NEXT WEEK. THE GUY DIDN'T WIN 5000+ RACES BEING SO,SO!

IS HE PAST HIS PRIME? I DONT THINK SO. I THINK HIS NUMBERS WOULD BE A WHOLE LOT DIFFERENT IF HE GOT BETTER STOCK TO DRIVE.

AS FOR THE LEVINS, *** THEM!!!! THE ONLY THING THEY EVER DID FOR THE SPORT WAS PUT LARSEN IN ANOTHER OCCUPATION!!!! AND THAT WAS A SHAME.

P.S. GO ASK HOMER WHAT HE THINKS, THE LEVINS TURNED ON RONNIE NOT HIM, THEY WERE JUST PISSED HE DIDN'T WIN WITH MY BOY DAVID IN THE ORANGE AND BLUE. THEY DIDN'T CARE THAT THE HORSE WAS IN WINNING POSITION AT THE 1/8TH ON A MILE TRACK!! SO AGAIN *** THE LEVINS---

Nance,

I guess you forgot that he pushed the horse to an unnecessary 26:2 opening quarter instead of working a give and go.
Pretty rough stuff for a lightly raced two year old.
A two year old who set a world record with Miller driving.

burton, point of order but if you think dt2 is Nance, you are mistaken.  It happens to all of us.  TC

The BOOMER is still the MAN  Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

He knows more about getting to the winners circle than almost any of them.
Dave Magee and Boomer 1-2 in wins I believe.  Boomer was HOSED by Shirley.
Good Luck Boom's in 06.

It's easy for boomboom to find the winners circle when he is walking to it..I've seen him screw up too many times.

You're right! Harness racing is the only sport where skills never deteriorate with age. Joe Marsh drives just like he used to too. And so does Dave Magee. I'm thinking of buying a horse and putting Clint Hodgins down to drive.

Have you ever drove one?? i have, not very many but i have . there is a reason for that, because i couldn't!!!

As far as a give in go, thank you captain obvious!!!! i think that usually works best for most.My point is very simple, talk to any trainer and owner in this industry past or present and ask them this question--- if your horse could be in winning position at the 1/8 th pole, would you be content with the drive that you got, no matter how you got there or the outcome?

IMO-- THERE IS NOT A TRAINER OR OWNER THAT COULD ASK FOR ANY MORE!!!

and exactly how many races andmoney did Ronnie win for the Levin's over the last 20 years??? But them shafting Ronnie has nothing to do with orange and blue! it has everything to do with there character/class or lack of! Has the drive my boy David got that night stopped homer from putting Ronnie up on anything he has that is not the Levin's!


p.s. as for miller being the reason he set a record at maywood. get a clue! it had nothing to do with miller it had everything to do with homer and my boy David!
