From a Maryland Horse Breeders Association

Anthony W. “Tony” Dutrow will be the judge for the 80th renewal of Maryland Horse Breeders Association’s annual event for Maryland-bred yearlings at the Maryland State Fairgrounds on Sunday, June 29, 2014.

Dutrow was born in Hagerstown, MD and grew up working with his father, Richard E. Dutrow, Sr. both on the farm and at the track. He also served as an assistant to Hall-of-Famer Bobby Frankel in California before going out on his own in 1987. Since then he has conditioned multiple-graded-stakes-winners such as Grace Hall, So Many Ways, Rightly So and Seattle Smooth.  His many successes include managing the early career of eventual Horse of the Year Havre de Grace.  While in his care she won win the Cotillion Stakes-G2 and was third in the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic-G1.

The MHBA show is open to all yearlings eligible for Maryland-bred registration, and will be held Sunday, June 29th in Horse Show Ring at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium.  Some of the well-known graduates of the show include Hall of Fame and Eclipse Award winning Safely Kept, Eclipse Award-winning juveniles Smart Angle and Declan’s Moon, in addition to the millionaires Urbane and Cherokee’s Boy.
