the rule is clear the trainer is responisible but mandella got it thrown out. and everyone acts as if mandella is this hay and oats trainer the same trainer who ran a horse who had been nerved trying to get the horse claimed in arizona the only state in the country where nerved horses are allowed to run. what ever you think about dutrow, his horses get the besat care of any trainer at saratoga/belmont/aqueduct. they absolutely stand out in the post parade and always look the best and best behaved too.
