Scott Lake remembers sitting in Tony Dutrow's living room a few years
ago, watching a $50,000 claiming race from Delaware Park. Lake's horse
won and Dutrow's horse was second. Within seconds, each trainer's phone
rang. Dutrow's assistant called to tell him their horse had been
claimed. Lake's assistant called to tell him they had a new horse in
"Tony said, 'I lost that horse,' " Lake remembered.
"Yeah, I know," Lake told him. "I got him."
That was just business. Their friendship began a decade ago when
Lake claimed another horse from Dutrow in Maryland. Dutrow, one of the
circuit's top trainers, could not figure why Lake would claim a horse
off him. Lake told him it wasn't an insult, not to take it personally.
He didn't. They didn't.
