Dutrow: Big Brown to Receive Steroid This Week

Attention-Seeking Trainer to Also Testify in Front of Congress

It appears as if Big Brown has one more race in him before being put out to stud. On Tuesday, Rick Dutrow, Jr., the colt’s trainer, said that the horse will be injected with Winstrol over the weekend. If he is healthy, Big Brown will run on either August 3 (the Haskell at Monmouth) or August 23 (the Travers at Saratoga). Now all we have to wait for is for Dutrow to try to take this statement back (as he did after the Preakness) and for the odds makers to figure on a strong bounce back run for the three year-old after receiving some gear.

Dutrow will have a busy week with an invitation from Congress for next Thursday. “Breeding, Drugs, and Breakdowns: The State of Thoroughbred Horseracing and the Welfare of the Thoroughbred Racehorse” is the latest interference on the sports world by members of the United States government. Expect him to make a horse’s ass out of himself, similar to Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Raphael Palmiero and Sammy Sosa have in the past.

The hearings, which will be held by the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection, were called for following the tragic death of Eight Belles at the Kentucky Derby.

Since Big Brown failed to win the Triple Crown at Belmont, Dutrow has been looking to place the blame on everything from the jockey (Kent Desormeaux) to the weather and track surface instead of taking any responsibility. With his fifteen minutes of fame nearly up, the brash and egotistical trainer will not disappoint and should put on a wonderful show in Washington.

We will all know that he was well-prepared if he either waves his finger during testimony or claims that he “misremembered” when he said that he gave Big Brown steroids.
