EYEWITNESS NEWS (WBRE/WYOU) — Hundreds of pages of documents have been released by the FBI from notorious Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger’s file, some detailing a horse race scheme carried out by Bulger’s group in Plains Township.

The FBI says the records were posted on the agency’s Vault public records database earlier this month and will be the first in a series of records released on Bulger.

The released files detail instances where Bulger fixed races at Pocono Downs in Plains Township.

In the documents, Pennsylvania State Police say Bulger met with a jockey at the Treadway Inn in August 1974, ordering the jockey, riding the horse “Star of Trent”, to ensure the horse placed first, second or third.
