The Spa Spot: Dutrow brothers sweep opening day stakes
Brothers Rick and Anthony Dutrow trained the winners of the first two stakes of the 2012 Saratoga season.
Rick Dutrow, who faces the prospect of losing his license to train in New York, saddled Pacific Ocean, winner of the Grade 3 James Marvin.
One race later, So Many Ways, trained by Anthony Dutrow, won the 94th running of the Grade 3 Schuylerville, the feature race on opening day for more than 50 years.
Rick Dutrow is appealing a 10-year revocation of his license by the New York State Racing and Wagering Board for numerous rules violations during his career.
