Dutrow Loaded With Juvenile Talent

Trainer Rick Dutrow plans on sending out a pair of promising juveniles next Saturday, with Paul Pompa’s Mountain Town being pointed to the Grade 2 Remsen and Jay Em Ess Stable’s Believe in A. P. headed to the Demoiselle.

 

Mountain Town, whom Dutrow claimed for $75,000 from Marylou Whitney and Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito out of his maiden victory in Saratoga on August 19, returned to finish second to eventual Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner Uncle Mo in the Grade 1 Champagne on October 9 at Belmont.

 

“In his training, Mountain Town is showing he’s going in the right direction; we’re very happy with him,” said Dutrow of the Cape Town colt. “It should be a really good race. Bill Mott’s horse [To Honor and Serve] is a nice colt, the New York-bred [Sleepy Hollow winner Bandbox] looks good, and our colt certainly hasn’t done anything wrong in two starts.”

 

Dutrow also trains Grade 1 Three Chimneys Hopeful winner and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile runner-up Boys At Tosconova, who Saturday breezed a half-mile in 54.44 at the Big A, and Rustler Hustler, who is 3-1-1 from five starts, including a victory in the 1 1/16-mile Gnomes Gold overnight turf stakes at Belmont on October 31.

 

“He needed to breeze; he was getting to be too much of a handful in the stall,” said Dutrow of Boys At Tosconova.


While Boys At Tosconova’s next move will be heading to Florida to prepare for his 3-year-old campaign, Rustler Hustler will be going to the Grade 1 CashCall Futurity at Hollywood Park on December 18.

 

“Keeping the three of them apart has been like clockwork so far,” said Dutrow. “I love my babies.”
