Richard E. "Rick" Dutrow, Jr. (born August 5, 1959 in Hagerstown, Maryland) is an American thoroughbred racehorse trainer. Known as Rick, his brother Anthony Dutrow is also a trainer. Their father, Richard E. Dutrow, Sr., was one of Maryland racing's "Big Four" who dominated racing in that state during the 1960s and '70s and who helped modernize flat racing training. At age sixteen, Rick, Jr. began working as his father's assistant. In 1995 he set up his own public stable in New York after his father left the NYRA circuit to return to Maryland. In 2008 he trained Big Brown to a Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes victory, although failing to capture the Triple Crown with a dead last finish in the 140th Belmont Stakes.

He got his big break in 2005 when he won 2 Breeders' Cups with Silver Train and Saint Liam.


Dutrow, Jr. was a finalist for the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Trainer for 2008.

Dutrow won an alternate award from horseraceinsider.com. Impact Trainer of the Year Insider Award 2008: To Rick Dutrow for demonstrating all that is right and all that is wrong with the state of the game. [1]
