In a last-ditch effort to save his training career, Richard Dutrow
Jr. planned to seek intervention from a federal court Friday to prevent
the New York State Racing and Wagering Board from suspending his license
for 10 years.
“We’re going to go to federal court,” Dutrow said Wednesday morning.
On Tuesday, the New York Court of Appeals for the second time in
three months ruled it would not hear Dutrow’s appeal of a suspension
handed down by New York regulators in 2011. Dutrow was slapped with a
10-year suspension for a history of rules violations and for “conduct at
racetracks in New York State and elsewhere [that] has been improper,
obnoxious, unbecoming, and detrimental to the best interests of racing.”
