Just under six years into his ten-year suspension in New York, longtime trainer Rick Dutrow is reportedly embarking on a new career in Saudi Arabia.

According to numerous tweets from Saudi owners and racing affiliates this week, Dutrow will serve as racing consultant to new owner Abdulrahman Fahad M Albawardi. According to reports from The Racing Post and Tattersalls, Abdulrahman Albawardi began purchasing horses in late 2018 with the intent to build a stable of five or ten horses.

Agent Ibrahim Rachid told media in October he was tasked with building a stable for Albawardi, who was interested in competing in stakes races in Saudi Arabia. Rachid signed the ticket for a son of Uncle Mo at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training for 450,000 guineas (approximately $611,000). Albawardi will race with trainer Mutlaq Saad, who also represented him at Tattersalls.
