Plainridge track boss to retire due to health concerns

Slot bid to continue

Gary T. Piontkowski, president of Plainridge Racecourse and the leader of the track’s long pursuit of slot machines, is retiring due to health concerns, the track announced this morning.

Plainridge, one of four applicants for the state’s sole slot machine license, will stay in the race for slots under new leadership. John Grogan, a consultant to the track since 2009, will take over as president.
