Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer has filed a motion for a preliminary injunction to be allowed to race at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., reports the Thoroughbred Daily News. The embattled Hall of Fame trainer has been banned from all tracks owned by The Stronach Group since June of 2019, and is seeking this injunction since no action has been taken against him by the California Horse Racing Board.
“The requested injunction will maintain the status quo which exists at all other non-TSG owned race meets in the State,” the filing states.
Hollendorfer is not requesting stalls at Santa Anita, as he is currently stabled at Los Alamitos and plans to remain there.
The filing argues that Hollendorfer “will suffer further irreparable harm to his business and occupation without the injunction. Plaintiff is 75 years old and has significant underlying medical conditions. The upcoming race meet at SAP may be Plaintiff’s last chance to salvage his profession.”
A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Nov. 19.
