STEWARD BAEZA IN STATEMENT: “I NEVER INDICATED ANY EVIDENCE WAS PLANTED”

By New York Gaming Commission Release:

Statement of Braulio Baeza, Jr.

I never indicated that any evidence was planted in this case.  To say otherwise intentionally misrepresents my conversations.

Statement of the N.Y.S. Gaming Commission

The allegations that the loaded syringes were planted have been fully litigated and were discussed in depth in the Commission Decision and Order denying Mr. Dutrow’s Motion to Re-Open his case. The Decision, which has been available on the Commission’s website since it was issued, addresses this matter directly. 

The Decision states that the NYRA Racing Investigator was interviewed [by the Queens County District Attorney] and indicated he did not see the State Investigator plant syringes.

Our former Steward did not participate in the Dutrow barn search and has no personal knowledge about what transpired during the search.

  1. I had to laugh: The same story published at the PA also headlined Baeza, but featured a photo of Dutrow.

    I wonder what BB thinks he “indicated” in those “intentionally misrepresented conversations.”
