The New York Racing Association confirmed a Daily Racing Form story* that it has changed course and will now allow Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer to enter his horses at NYRA tracks. Hollendorfer is planning to enter a horse in the G1 H. Allen Jerkens on the Travers undercard.
NYRA announced during the Belmont summer meet that Hollendorfer, who already had horses in New York, would be denied entry. Yesterday’s release reversed that course.
Hollendorfer was ruled off tracks operated by The Stronach Group after six horses suffered catastrophic injuries, four at Santa Anita and two at Golden Gate Fields, also had an entry refused there after attempting to drop a recent claim drastically in class following a very poor effort.
Following the opening of the prestigious Del Mar summer meet, a San Diego Superior Court judge allowed Hollendorfer to race and train at the Oceanside track. Hollendorfer is currently licensed to race in New York and California.
