Rick Plano is far and away the best driver and trainer at Cal Expo, IMHO.

Wow. Was he really turned down at Poconos?Huh
I don't understand the Big M gave him stalls a year ago didn't they???
I was curious why he didn't go to Indiana with the rest of the Calif crew Huh?
I am curious why our best trainer and driver would be refused stalls out East at certain tracks whats the deal???

 Refused stalls at Pompano also, as for Indiana, last year when Luke was there for a bit, Rick went there after his Vernon stint and was politely told he was not welcome.

We must not be watching the same races.  Pocono has a few decent drivers but it is hardly the Meadowlands.  Watch some of Plano's races from Vernon,  he got horses home that had no business winning.  I watch the races carefully because I bet money on them.  as for Luke he has some promise, his problem is just inexperience.  He need to learn patience.  Luke's problem is his timing for his moves is too often premature.  he needs to be less anxious and that will come with time and experience hopefully.

YOUR DEAD ON ABOUT RICK BUT LUKE IS NOT TOO GOOD.   

RICK IS A FINE HOREMAN AND I THINK ALL THIS NON SENSE ABOUT HIM SETTING UP EVERY RACE IS NUTS.  WHEN YOUR RACING 4 CLAIMERS THEY ARE NOT VERY SOUND AND ARE ALSO NOT VERY CONSISTENT.

okay  if inexperience is not Luke's problem , then timing certainly is.  He is aggressive too much so.  some times you just have to time your move since with a lot of these cheap claimers, they might only have one real brush in them.  There is also a time when you know you have no horse, then just sit on the pylons and circle the course.

Rick still gets his pick of what 4 claimer he wants to drive.

Luke is always aggressive my gosh the other night Lodi Copper N/w 3 trott 56 to the half WTF was that. In front by 17 lengths This horse sometimes break just pass the 3/4 but stayed flat and won in a 1.58 and a peice.
Now honestly if that had been any bodys horse with half a fricking brain you would have been ready  reem Luke a knew one. I bet if that was his Ricks horse that would not have happened.

I guess Kenedy Lindsay took Lou Penas advice and put his drivers licsense in a toaster pop them down and let them melt. laughing guy laughing guy

 He may be a fine horseman, but he burned too many bridges along the way, and was openly blatant about it, and isn't really welcome anywhere except Vernon ( and thats because they still think he is the GODFATHER there) and CALX. sneaky

It's funny to watch people try to defend Rick's integrity..
He has been bounced from as many jurisdictions as anyone..
As far as honesty and integrity, when he is told to go elsewhere by a track, that says a million words.
The tracks usually need horses and refusing him has nothing to do with lesser stock..
And, if his stock is so bad and non competitive, why would he go and run 5th or 6th each race?
He can drive, he always could. He is also a good horseman..
But, he is also extremely dishonest, as his record shows..
As for his son, without dad's help in California, he is clueless...

Not sure about his quality of stock but if he was turned away at Pocono they must have had a reason......They certainly dont have a surplus of horses there right now and are calling for horses everyday to fill races

I am not certain we are defending anything other than the fact that he is a good horseman and a good driver.

Looks like you are wrong. He has been given 10 stalls at Pompano.  Meet opens the 16th of October.

  Good work. That is factual. Less  BSmeter  and rumors more facts. Good job of finding out the correct information.

  Can't always believe the stupid rumors floating around the track. I see the Calx people that left don't really want to come back. 4 people that I seen and if you count RP that would be 5.
