When the House subcommittee on commerce, trade and consumer protection held a hearing on horse racing yesterday, there was a nameplate for Rick Dutrow, trainer of Big Brown, at the witnesses' table. But there was no Rick Dutrow. The congressmen had gotten wind that Dutrow would be a no-show, but purposefully kept the nameplate there. "I would like to note the empty place for him," committee chairwoman Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) announced. "Apparently, Mr. Dutrow was too ill to travel to Washington, D.C., and will not testify with our other witnesses today.

Dutrow's suspension was set to begin today. In suspending Dutrow, the state board cited the trainer's long history of rules infractions in New York and elsewhere, including numerous medication violations.

The black cap worn by trainer Rick Dutrow yesterday morning at Pimlico Race Course had two words emblazoned across the front: TRIPLE CROWN. The words on Dutrow's head will be on his mind for the next three weeks, until Big Brown, his undefeated Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, leaves the gate at the Belmont Stakes on June 7, trying to become the first Triple Crown winner in 30 years. Saturday's 5 1/4-length Preakness victory offered nothing but hope that Big Brown would be the one to break through, even though Dutrow said after the Preakness that there had been no other "good horses" in the race.

NEW YORK - Ice Box has been made the 3-1 favorite for Saturday's $1 million Belmont Stakes. Ice Box finished second in the Kentucky Derby and skipped the Preakness. Ice Box will leave from the No. 5 post for trainer Nick Zito and will be ridden by Jose Lezcano. A field of 12 3-year-olds has been entered for the final leg of the Triple Crown. Neither Derby winner Super Saver nor Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky are running in the 1 1/2-mile Belmont. Preakness runner-up First Dude is the second choice at 7-2.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission's License Review Committee yesterday denied Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Rick Dutrow a license to race in the state in 2011. KHRC executive director Lisa Underwood said the unanimous denial was based on Dutrow's "consistent disregard for the rules of racing. " Dutrow, who met with officials for an hour before the decision was rendered, can appeal. The decision is the latest setback for the successful but controversial Dutrow. He won the Derby and the Preakness in 2008 with Big Brown but had trouble staying out of trouble since.

Once again it looks too easy. Big Brown, who appeared certain to become the 12th Triple Crown winner June 7, will seek to rebound from his abysmal last-place finish in the Belmont Stakes when he faces six ordinary rivals in Sunday's $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park (ESPN Classic, TVG, ESPNews, post 6:14 p.m.). Trained by the ultra-confident Rick Dutrow, Big Brown was perfect in five starts heading into the Belmont Stakes but was exhausted by the far turn before being pulled up in the stretch by Kent Desormeaux, who will be aboard him again Sunday.

The trainer of Big Brown had been saying for days that no other horse had much of a chance. And he was right. In just the fourth race of his life, Big Brown yesterday ignored a terrible outside post position, turned it into a dream trip and ended with a 4 3/4-length victory in the 134th Kentucky Derby. Talking about his boasts, Rick Dutrow, Big Brown's trainer, said he had merely been listening to his horse. "When he turned for home, I knew the game was over," Dutrow, who won his first Kentucky Derby, said after his horse finished the 1 1/4-mile race in 2 minutes, 1.82 seconds.

Rick Dutrow is still wondering what went wrong with Big Brown in the Belmont Stakes. He's also wondering why everyone seems to be ganging up on him. In his first news conference since Big Brown's failed Triple Crown attempt 3 weeks ago, the trainer said yesterday he's been inundated with calls about "negative stuff" and wishes it would stop. During the Triple Crown, Dutrow was criticized for just about everything - from dealing with Big Brown's quarter crack, to belittling his rivals, to giving his prized colt steroids.

The idea was to clean out Kentucky Derby favorite Big Brown's lungs, and that mission was taken care of yesterday morning. After working three furlongs in 35 and two-fifth seconds, Big Brown headed back to the barn at Churchill Downs. "Once we got past the wire, he was dragging me out of the irons," said exercise rider Michelle Nevin, the native of Ireland who is on Big Brown in the mornings. "I said, 'Whoa, buddy. You've got to wait.' " Rumors of continuing foot problems are scoffed at around the undefeated Florida Derby winner's barn.

Triple Crown contender Big Brown has a slight crack on his left front hoof, but trainer Rick Dutrow Jr. expressed confidence yesterday that the injury would not keep his colt from running in the Belmont Stakes in less than two weeks. However, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner has missed two days of training at Belmont Park and will miss at least several more while being treated by hoof specialist Ian McKinlay. The colt suffered a quarter crack on the inside of his left heel that is five-eighths of an inch long.

Kentucky Derby- and Preakness-winning trainer Rick Dutrow was suspended for 30 days yesterday for violating doping rules. The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission issued the suspension more than a year after tests revealed that Salute the Count had an excessive amount of Clenbuterol in his blood after finishing second in a race at Churchill Downs the day before Dutrow won the Derby with Big Brown. Clenbuterol allows horses to breathe easier while exercising. It's legal only at low dosages.

That warm breeze blowing across from the Jersey Shore yesterday was a sigh of relief from trainer Rick Dutrow. Seeking redemption after his Belmont Stakes nightmare, Big Brown wore down the pace-setting Coal Play in the final eighth-mile to capture the $1 million Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park.

"There was something wrong with the horse [in the Belmont] but I could see in the mornings [since] that he was the same horse" that destroyed his opposition in Florida, Kentucky and Maryland before finishing last at Belmont Park in his quest to become the 12th Triple Crown winner.
