If Sears stays at Yonkers, as seems likely, I am wondering if it will cost him any Grand Circuit drives? I agree with the above comment that I do not think anyone is losing any sleep at the Meadowlands-from management to heavy bettors to casual fans-that Sears is not there. But I am a bit surprised if he chooses Yonkers, because I think the more not-so-sound horses he (and the other drivers) campaign around those tight turns, the more likely the risk of an accident and injury. And he made it clear last year at the Meadowlands that he would not drive in the cheapest claimers.
Sears was not happy with his Grand Circuit Drives in 2012. It was not a good stakes season for him.
