Rick Dutrow Jr

Trainer Profile

Rick Dutrow
Richard Dutrow Jr was born in Hagerstown, Maryland on 5 August 1959. Dutrow Jr and his brothers used to accompany their father, the legendary trainer Richard "Dick" Dutrow, to the stables when they were young boys. Rick started his career as his father's assistant at the age of 16.

His father moved back to Maryland in 1990, and Dutrow decided to make it on his own but
his solo career didn't really take off. More likely to dope himself than his horses back then, Dutrow took up accommodation in a tack room at Aqueduct, and his barn was stabled by a lone horse named Churkin, at a cost of $16,000.

In 2000, Dutrow's determination began to pay off, and Stalwart Member became his solitary
stakes winner that year. Since then Dutrow snagged the title of top trainer in New York in 2001, 2002 and 2005, and placed second or third in the subsequent years, winning over 700 races.
Rick Dutrow
2005, was Dutrow's year, with Silver Train bringing home his first Breeders'
Cup victory at Belmont Park in the Sprint, followed by Saint Liam winning the Woodward and
Breeders' Cup Classic, and being named Horse of the Year. Dutrow had a much-publicized bet on Saint Liam to win and netted a small fortune.

In 2008 Dutrow achieved what many believed would be impossible when he won the Kentucky Derby with Big Brown, despite the fact that the horse broke from stall gate 20 and only had 3 lifetime starts before the race. Big Brown then went on to win the Preakness and was considered a shoe-in for the Triple Crown, most notably by Dutrow himself only to finish stone last in the Belmont Stakes. This warmed the hearts of those who had become nauseated by Dutrow's arrogant posturing.

Dutrow was also cited in 2008 for doping his horses with illegal performance-enhancers and faced a possible ban for administering steroids to his horses.
