According to the Daily Racing Form's David Grening, Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer will be allowed to race in at New York Racing Association tracks after all. Hollendorfer told Grening he planned to send a horse to next weekend's Grade 1 H. Allen Jerkens at Saratoga.
The move seems to be a reversal by NYRA; the organization issued a press release earlier this summer on the heels of Santa Anita's announcement Hollendorfer was no longer welcome to stable or enter at Stronach Group properties.
