I have a pal who needs a connection at Woodbine. Anyone got a recommendation / phone contact?

I don't know how chummy (with the trainer, or you) we need to be in order to make a recommendation, but I would consider Lorne Richards, who has trained at WO since 2001 after relocating from western Canada. I have followed his progress from afar for nearly two decades and I never notice any reason to knock him. (I have met him, but only once, and I'd followed his horses for several years prior to that)





Year BRD Starts Wins Seconds Thirds Unplaced Win% ITM% ROI Earnings

Career Total (at all tracks) 1649 374 295 219 761 22 53 1.5710 10,533,562


Here's his up-to-the-minute record AT Woodbine during the past 15 years:

2016 TB 25 4 6 5 10 16 60 1.2680 135,407
2015 TB 29 7 6 3 13 24 55 2.2172 180,722
2014 TB 29 5 5 3 16 17 44 1.1449 117,126
2013 TB 39 8 7 6 18 20 53 1.4308 265,329
2012 TB 37 10 11 2 14 27 62 1.9055 366,259
2011 TB 48 10 11 3 24 20 50 2.8895 379,932
2010 TB 73 11 15 9 38 15 47 1.4987 670,187
2009 TB 66 18 6 10 32 27 51 2.7393 467,884
2008 TB 66 19 14 4 29 28 56 2.1833 695,835
2007 TB 72 14 10 11 37 19 48 1.0362 915,211
2006 TB 60 14 12 12 22 23 63 1.6384 959,767
2005 TB 61 17 6 11 27 27 55 2.3852 610,193
2004 TB 70 20 12 10 28 28 60 2.1414 933,547
2003 TB 70 12 9 14 35 17 50 2.6400 648,262
2002 TB 74 21 15 7 31 28 58 2.0364 1,133,598
2001 TB 68 11 14 10 33 16 51 2.3970 544,121


His lifetime win percentage is a robust 22, and he seems quite patient about picking spots.

He's even 9-for-39 during the 2010's at Gulfstream (during the winters).

Never below 10% for a calendar year since he began training in 1980, a year in which he went 10-for-19.


He's a nice guy, who isn't overloaded with horses, and he is plenty accomplished at a challenging venue.


So at least give him consideration.

it's to handle a claim - do you have a phone number for him?
