A year ago at Fair Grounds, trainer Richie Scherer liked what he was seeing during morning training as the 2015&#45;16 race meet got started. &ldquo;Last year, I came in here and had horses I thought were doing really well, and I told people I was going to win some races, and I didn&rsquo;t at all,&rdquo; Scherer said wryly. &ldquo;This year, they all were training that way again, but I kept my mouth shut.&rdquo;The silence has proved golden, as Scherer, through Sunday&rsquo;s races, had won with five of his first 14 starters. And these have not been obvious, slam&#45;dunk winners; Scherer&rsquo;s $2 return on investment stands at a gigantic $5.71.&ldquo;We got here a little earlier this year, but mainly everything has been the same,&rdquo; Scherer said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s just a condition comes up right, you get a good pace scenario, a good ride. It&rsquo;s all just happened to come together at the same time instead of being spread out.&rdquo;Scherer&rsquo;s father, Merrill, also has started the meet strong with four wins from 11 starters, and both of those Scherers plus Richie&rsquo;s brother Gary won Fair Grounds races over two days last week.
