Plainridge track partner says former president Piontkowski ‘pulled a fast one’

Former Plainridge Racecourse president Gary T. Piontkowski “pulled a fast one” on his business partners by taking at least $1 million in cash from the harness track’s money room through frequent withdrawals of small amounts over many years, according to sworn testimony before the state gambling commission.

“The former president was deceptive,” said Stanley E. Fulton, the track’s principal investor, who claims he had no knowledge of the withdrawals before state gambling investigators brought them to his attention this spring. “Had I known of these withdrawals from the money room, they would never have been allowed to happen.”
