My name is John Dutrow, and my family and parents, Tony and Kim Dutrow have made our name synonymous with the Racing industry. And no, by racing I do not mean NASCAR or Tour De France. I mean horse racing, the original racing industry. Horse racing is what my family knows, how we’ve made our living, and most importantly, what we love. The purpose of this blog is to not only educate folks about the racing industry itself, but also share our experience in this rollercoaster lifestyle. In this unpredictable sport the favorite wins only 33 percent of the time. With only 13 champions ever everyone in this game wants the next Triple Crown Winner. Follow my blog and find out if my dad trains the next Triple Crown Winner!
While attending Drexel University, the coop program allowed me to have multiple internships with NYRA (New York Racing Association). Starting off my exciting career, as assistant coordinator of the press box, communications team and special events for three different summers. I managed and provided documents and paperwork needed for the Press. Interviewed the best Jockeys, Trainers, Owners, Fans, in the horse racing industry. As well, oversaw and kept daily recaps, records and statistics of horse racing stats throughout the biggest meet of the year at Saratoga Race Track (oldest sporting venue in America).
Through my career, I knew there was a safer and more effective way to care for horses’, and thus WINNERS EQUINE and LUBRISYN HA was born and became one of the best-selling and most effective respiratory herbs and joint supplements on the market today.
After College, I’ve was able to work with the top Farms, Vets and Trainers at Racetracks for over 5 years now selling products and most importantly helping horses and other animals have successful careers.
My entire life, I have been around horses. If I can share any knowledge to help a horse get healthier then this blog will be a success, which is why I am sharing my story!
What push started my career was an unbelievable experience assisting LubrisynHA founder Dr. Allday, who has been the lameness specialist for an impressive lineup of equine legends including: Twenty Triple Crown Race Winners, Fifteen Breeder’s Cup Race Winners, and five Thoroughbred Horses of the Year.
I assisted in daily operations of lameness within the top thoroughbreds horses in the country, including a Breed Cup Winner. Also, assist with diagnostic tools such as X-rays, change bandages, and attend different trade shows educating and selling products.
Ultimately, my goal is to share the beauty of this incredible sport. At earlier stages of my life, I did not appreciate how special this sport is, as well as the industry as a whole. On this website, I will share pictures and my love of the track and the backside as well as show you a different exciting world. Regardless of how special racing is, it is still a rather foreign topic, to most folks across the country. For whatever reason, the typical day to day person knows very little, if anything about racing.
If I can share even just a glimpse of the magic I have seen while growing up in this sport, then as far as I’m concerned, this website will have been a success.
