Tried this a couple of years ago with no luck. But going to try again. Looking to figure out what happened back in the 80's. He had a stable of 8k-12k claimers at balmoral. Raced at Sportsman's and Hawthorne. Then around '82 stable got really strong with top level horses.(Prince Sharvid Tact Boyden). What caused the change. Better owners I assume. Then busted at Maywood for race fixing and suspended. Later you had Brett Pelling show up at the Meadowlands and had great success. What is the relationship? Did Brett get his horses/Owners? Cannot find much on the internet.

I remember him from the Meadowlands in the late 70s... he was a claiming wiz, had a nice horse named Illusionist who used to win in 100K claimers, then he disappeared, always wondered what became of him.

When I started in '80 he had a small stable of claimers. The best I think was a 25k claimer called Tennessee N. Then in '81 or "82 his stable took off. Won the training title at Sportsman's around '83. And had some really nice New Zealand breds.

I thought he had some top notch stock right when he got to Chicago.
If not I think he had a month or two waiting for the transportation, detentions etc; which were much stricter back then.
But it has been a long time.
I do remember winning some big tickets with him while he had an appeal going on the drug charges.
he was winning with everything before he got tossed.

I had never heard that story. Very sad.
The story says this was in '95. When did he get suspended? I thought it long before then.

Always liked him. Would talk to him in the open paddock at Sportman's all the time.

 Brian raced in California in the mid 70's at Bay Meadows and Los Alimitos. Met him through a mutual acquaintance when I was down a Los Al for some business.

 Seemed to be a real gentlemen and told me a funny story about one of his horses that was doing real good at the time. The horse was called Trent. He said he received a call from a person in Illinois who will remain nameless but, offered him a substancial amount at that time for the horse. He said he would sell and didn't think much more about it because he thought the guy might be blowing smoke. Well a couple days later a guy arrives at his barn with a brief case filled with 50 g's cash and Brian said when the guy opened the case his eyes lit up and couldn't believe it.

 Always thought he seemed to be a decent guy. I would describe him as relaxed, sort of care free and friendly.

Told me at O'Hare airport Shadow Dance was the best pacer in the world. I went on to lose thousands and thousands on him from that point on. True story.

Remember that horse. Think his actual name was Young Tennessee N.
