Dutrow Fights Back, Gets Reprieve

Richard Dutrow Jr., facing a 10-year revocation of his trainer's license, was given a reprieve Monday morning when a New York State Supreme Court judge issued a 30-day stay of the New York State Racing and Wagering Board's penalty handed down last week.

At the conclusion of a 30-minute hearing, Judge Richard Giardino issued the 30-day stay, saying he didn't feel "it would undermine the integrity of the system to allow the stay." Had the judge denied the stay, Dutrow would have been banned from the grounds of New York tracks beginning Tuesday.

Dutrow did not attend the hearing in Schenectady. Instead, he was at his Aqueduct barn. Reached by phone, Dutrow said he was relieved to get the stay and has tried to remain positive through this process.

"I'm glad I still get to go to the barn," Dutrow, 52, said. "I got a very positive attitude here, no negativism at all. It's easy for me to get up in the morning and go to the barn. Everything else comes so naturally for me there." Read More
