Dutrow's career is far from dead

A few months back it looked like racing had seen the last of trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. for at least the next 10 years.

Instead, a scene out of a Monty Python movie is now playing out at Aqueduct with Dutrow filling the role of the old man who protested, “I’m not dead.”

Not only is Dutrow’s career as a trainer alive, but his barn has been as hot as it has ever been.

On a legal front, the Kentucky Derby-winning trainer received word Wednesday that the New York State Supreme Court had granted him a stay of a 10-year suspension handed down by the New York State Racing and Wagering Board until his appeals are exhausted. Read More

 

What the Nation is saying about Dutrow's career is far from dead...

Mary Z. This has been an ongoing thing on the East Coast for a L-O-N-G Time, charges after charges,Bay Roan is correct.It's like ,unbelieveable,and unprecidented. The lawyers are going to have to ( to barrow a line from The movie "Public Enemies" ..."take the white gloves off...") in order to complete this long drawn out drama.
Do we have a lawyer blogger out there? Could The State of Ny be taking a more career ending approach,ine of permanence.Despite it look ing like thier sitting on thier hands? How many Appeals can Dutrow have before something is finally Fini?
Thank You Bob Ehalt, and Paul Moran,excellent work as always.It's no wonder you guys are AWard Winning Journalists!
BayRoan, What exactly are these charges? I never read of any of his horses being close to or having dropped dead on the track. See, I figure maybe the added frivolous charges that could easily be disputed maybe weakened the case against him. The proven violations should have been made to stick and not that they are of no importance, but the paperwork mix ups should have been dismissed in order to focus on what's truly important, and enough of the hysterics already.
This is insane!! They are actually gonna sit on their thumbs til his horses start dropping dead in the middle of races?? How much more blatant does it all have to be! "Mockery" is an understatement!! I'd hate to see what these horses look like the day after these races!
