This is not exaclty his first time at the dance. Justice could have been served over a year ago if he hadn't lawyered up, then stalled and delayed as long as he could.
It is not like it is his first offense or as if he has been spending his spare time doing charitable work for horse rescue organizations. He is a shady guy who has operated on the fringe of legality for a long time. For all the crap thrown at Dutrow, he is twice the horseman of this guy and takes a million times better care of his stock.
As far as I am concerned, I hope he wins the TC, then gets a ban take takes him away for a while, so his horses and the sport can heal from his stench.
