The Daily Racing Form’s David Grening is reporting that suspended trainer Rick Dutrow has formally transferred his horses into the care of others in Florida and New York. In New York, Wesley Ward took over about 42 horses, while six others owned by Paul Pompa moved to different barns, including that of Rudy Rodriguez. In Florida, Michelle Nevin, former assistant and girlfriend of Dutrow, passed her trainer’s test Wednesday according to Gulfstream management, and has been given 20 stalls at the track. Multiple graded stakes winner Teaks North is among the horses now in Nevin’s care.

The suspension order states that Dutrow is banned from “any arrangements made to care for, train, enter, race, invoice, collect fees or payments, manage funds, employ or insure workers, provide advice or information, or otherwise assist with any aspect of training of the horse.”

    Now he says he has new evidence that will clear him.

      Dr. Allday as a character witness?

         Dr Allday, veterinarian to the “Super Trainers”
        What’s in your Black Bag???? All the goodies one needs to CHEAT their way to the top!!!!
        Take out this Guy and watch those win percentages drop, drop, drop.
        Makes me sick!
        Someone needs to rid our sport of Crooked Vets, doping our horses into fragile oblivion.
        Start here with Allday.

        • The Truth

          Allday hasn’t worked for Dutrow since 2006.
          What rock have you been sleeping under??!!!

          • Barry Irwin

            Steve Allday in addition to not having worked for Dutrow for several years also has not been a fan of his for a long time.

          • Dead Heat

            I am sure Steve Byk has a Archive interview that can back that statement up too.

          • Tinky

            Glad you got the subtle part of the joke.

        • Thelibrarian

          The Vets are out of control. Make no mistake about it, they are the ones figuring out which drugs will work & won’t test, what the dosage should be & what the lead time is. IF the trainer gets caught….it’s the trainer that gets caught!

    Guess we’re all just completely Dutrow’d out.  May Dutrow find a better path and not lose himself in a pool of self pity.
    As for the rest of us…it is the beginning of something different in the sport of kings that we all love so much…hopefully the momentum continues and REAL CHANGE is our reward.

  • Karen

    Rick’s girlfriend passes her trainer’s test and immediately gets 20 stalls at Gulfstream?  Haha!  Yeah, that’s how it always goes for new trainers.  Good heavens, Mr. Racing Secretary at Gulfstream, you should go into politics.  Your blatant dishonesty would fit right in.

    • STIXNSTONES42

      RIGHT ON!  EITHER SOMETHING’S TILT OR THERE ARE ONE HELL OF A LOT OF EMPTY STALLS AT GULFSTREAM’S PREMIER WINTER MEET. 

      • Are you serious?

        Absolute BS. Could Joe Shmoe down from Bowie or Penn National and get at least 8 or 10 stalls? Heck no.

        • Roisin

          I know a very experienced good trainer who is a true horseman and he was refused stalls at Gulfstream this season.

    • Thelibrarian

      She’s probably got all the ones the other guys don’t want? Dutrow’s not in the top 10 in the standings there. If you’re the racing secretary you’re gonna kick her out or use her to fill races under the threat of kicking her out? THAT’S the politics! 

      • Karen

         I’m sure there are plenty of other trainers who applied for stalls, and didn’t get as many as they needed, who would be happy to fill races.  Other trainers who did not wear out their welcome in the Steward’s office.

        • Thelibrarian

          Right! ’cause all of us owners & trainers LOVE to get hustled into races we don’t want to run in….that end up being won by….insert supertrainer here. They even made the point in the story to say she got the mighty Teaks North…..who hasn’t hit the board since Aug. 2011 & earned $4500 last year. If she resurrects him….she should get as many stalls as she wants! Good luck!

    • Don Reed

      Didn’t Ernie Paragallo, after he was tossed out of racing, try this same tactic?

    • Kim Howell (Anita Xanax)

      When you come complete with a ready made, working stable complete with stakes horses you’d be amazed what you can get…

      • Don Reed

        Exactly the same as 2012 when O’Neill’s hush-puppy assistant trainer zoomed up the earnings chart while O’N was “banned” for 45 days.

      • Karen

         But Kim, the trainer is the girlfriend of the horse’s previous trainer who has now been handed a 10 year suspension.  Those twenty horses could most likely still go to Gulfstream, but to barns that don’t have that going on.  The secretary is thumbing his nose at the ruling, and I hope he gets in trouble for it.

        Why play straight if race offices do that?

    • TJ

      That is politics…

      • Hawk222

        For those who are trying to keep the sport from going down the drain, I commend you. I am sorry others are hurting and not helping. Dutrow is bad for the business, and until you get rid of him and everything connected to him out of the sport, he will continue to cheat in one fashion or the other. Every person in this business had better get serious about cleaning up the mess, or all the people who say all the negative things about racing will be proven to be correct.

    WViginia or Delaware would be glad to give him 50+ stalls !

    • diastu in tempe

      Oh yeah, Dutrow would fit right in at those maggot magnet places such as Mountaineer, and Beulah, and Penn, and Charles Town. Maybe he’d like to spend some time in NM or OK too. Or in Arizona’s own little cesspool – Rillito. Gag.

    He is already in Florida with his girlfriend.  He will be able to train on the farms and work horses at Fair Hills.  Guess here is that he will get a different cell phone to conduct business.  He isn’t out of the game, just more inconvenienced.

    • Thomalene E.

      Palm Beach Downs.   Corner of 441 and Atlantic Ave……  No stable gate there, no security.  Pay your stall rent and your good to go.  AND its a “recognized” facility.  All you do is phone or fax your work out times in and they are printed in the DRF and accepted by the stewards.  Wesley Ward loves the place…. Dutrow will be just fine there.

      • Don Reed

        Give us the full legal address, if you have it, and let’s all look at this “stable” on Google maps.  Thanks.

        • Thomalene E.

          10317 west atlantic ave, delray beach, FL.  The training center is on the NW corner of the intersection, across the street from the post office.

          • Don Reed

            Thank you, sir.  Looks like a nice place to go stir crazy, after Dutrow having his turn in the limelight for all these years.  Maybe my joke about “Dreyfus” wasn’t far-fetched after all.

    If Rick Dutrow is “Prohibited from Provid(ing) advice or information” please Tim Ritvo, and the NYSRWB, explain how this can be enforced.  Will there be listening devices monitoring dinner chatter or pillow talk?  Michelle is his girlfriend.  This is another abberation.

    To those posting about training centers, Palm Beach Downs, etc., I strongly suggest you READ the second paragraph which The Paulick Report has kindly posted.  It quotes the RULING.

    • Thomalene E.

      Right, Sue, it does.  I think my point is that what is to PREVENT Rick from training these horses at a facility where there is NO security, or on-site management to prevent it?  Do you think he wont do it just because there is a “ruling”.  Further, the State can’t prevent him from training on private property, anyway.  Best they can do is not allow horses to be entered in “his name” at the racetracks.

      • Sue M. Chapman

        I guess we’re going to find out if the ruling is or is not worth the paper it’s written on.

    The transfer of horses to any Dutrow cooperator like Nevin is a travesty! What kind of a penalty is it if Dutrow trains by his cellphone! Enough already!

      Which I, too, wrote the day Ray posted the article.  Call me stupid, but I do not see any way to enforce the ruling.  Would love to know who wrote it.
