Injury Ends Arson Squad's Career

Trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. happily reported that the injuries his multiple Grade 2 winner Arson Squad suffered when breaking down just before completing a workout here Saturday do not appear to be life-threatening, although his racing career is over.

Arson Squad, 9, retires with 9 wins in 35 career starts and earnings of nearly $1.2 million. Owned by the Jay Em Ess Stable, Arson Squad made his final start on Dec. 10 at Aqueduct, finishing third in the Queens County Stakes. Arson Squad joined Dutrow’s barn during summer 2008 and promptly won the Grade 2 Meadowlands Cup. He’s also a graded stakes winner locally, accounting for the Grade 3 Skip Away in April 2010.
