US Trainer Dutrow 10-Year Ban & US$50k Fine

Thursday, 13th October 2011

In the US overnight, New York regulators “revoked Rick Dutrow’s licence for at least 10 years & fined him US$50,000 for what they said has been a pattern of rules violations by the controversial trainer” reported bloodhorse.com. The 3-member State Racing & Wagering Board “reduced a far more serious penalty as proposed by the hearing officer in the case: lifetime revocation of his licence”. Dutrow “who one board member said has been cited for violating various racing rules in 9 states & 15 different tracks, is also barred from being on the grounds of any racetrack in New York during the 10-year period”. Board chairman John Sabini declared: “Let this be a lesson to other people in the business.” Sabini said Dutrow “has repeatedly violated rules in jurisdictions across the country & a licence is a privilege and not a right.”
