Enough is Enough by Jonathan Stettin

May 17th, 2018|Tags: |

Most of you know I am a supporter of Rick Dutrow and specifically his being reinstated into racing. There are many reasons for this not the least of which is the large majority of allegations against him are false and misleading. Equally important is I know he is a first class horseman, who always put his horses first. Many people do not realize the bulk of the allegations and violations are administrative and you don't take a man's livelihood for being sloppy. Drug cheats have breakdowns. It is inherent to the game they play. Rick has none. That speaks loudly. Below you will find three things of interest. An article I wrote about Rick and his career. A letter Rick sent to the Paulick Report asking for a second chance and a video I ask you watch with an open mind. You'll also find a link to the petition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWLC1_7wGcs&t=27s         Rick's Letter: “Training race horses is my life. I have no other life. I have made mistakes and I am very sorry. I have said things which I [...]

Edgar Gets 7000 Wins by Jonathan Stettin

May 16th, 2018|Tags: |

Edgar Prado, a gentleman and consummate professional achieved the rare 7000 win milestone in his great career. I remember when Richard Migliore was injured while riding first call for John Kimmel and Kimmel brought Edgar to Saratoga to ride for him. Prior to that Edgar was the king of the Maryland circuit but coming to New York showed he had the talent to compete with the best anywhere. I will always have an affinity for Edgar. He rode for me personally but of equal importance he helped a big score when he brought Birdstone home in the Belmont Stakes as we cheered "Get Em Edgar" to the dismay of the crowd at Calder that fun day. You can read that great Edgar story below which actually started Past the Wire and my column. Edgar got his 7000th win at Parx aboard Thefundsarelow in the sixth race. Congratulations Edgar, well deserved! Read No Apology Necessary here.....a great Edgar story..

Jockey Guild Pulls Support From NTRA Safety & Integrity Alliance

May 15th, 2018|Tags: , , , |

Jonathan Stettin discusses the Jockey Guild pulling their support from the NTRA Safety and Integrity Alliance and the reasons behind the delay of the races last Saturday at Belmont. NYRA claims some of the riders complaints are without merit, but I still think this is all something relatively easy to iron out. Watch and listen to Jonathan's comments here...

Mike Gets Days, Won’t Affect the Big Ones

May 11th, 2018|Tags: |

Mike Smith received a 4 day suspension from the California Horse Racing Board in a controversial non "DQ" but it won't affect him on Preakness or Black Eyed Susan day as they are considered designated races. If he rides he can serve the suspension on different days. Obviously he'll ride given the option he will likely have. The non disqualification occurred last Sunday afternoon while Mike was aboard Achira who bore out in the stretch.
