On February 17, RCI President Ed Martin formally requested that the New York State Racing and Wagering Board commence a review of Dutrow's license. A letter from RCI to the NYSRWB outlined that Dutrow has violated the rules of racing in nine different states, at 15 racetracks, and has been cited 64 times during his training career.

“In addition to numerous violations of the drug rules pertaining to phenylbutazone, clenbuterol, and mepivacaine, there are violations concerning failure to adhere to licensing requirements, entering ineligible horses, conduct detrimental to racing involving false or misleading statements, as well as a variety of violations concerning failure to file proper documentation consistent with the rules,” Martin wrote in his letter.
