Dutrow, Lake have lasting friendship

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 the barn.


"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.
