Stronach Group Bans Embattled Trainer Amber Cobb From Its Racetracks

Embattled trainer Amber Cobb, already suspended by the Delaware Racing Commission for her mistreatment of a filly in her barn, has been banned from training and racing at the five racetracks owned by the Stronach Group and 1/ST Racing.

Paulick Report has covered Cobb and the allegations of mistreatment since July. Read more about the Delaware Racing Commission’s first hearing regarding the incident here and about the ensuing summary suspension by the Delaware Park stewards as the Commission considers additional violations here.

The Stronach Group and 1/ST Racing issued a statement this week regarding Amber Cobb on Friday:

“In August, 1/ST RACING reviewed the video of the abhorrent conduct of Amber Cobb as presented to the Delaware Stewards and we immediately elected to permanently ban her from training and racing at our facilities. Cobb’s actions are completely reprehensible and are totally out of line with 1/ST’s commitment to safety, integrity, and accountability. 1/ST RACING believes that the care and safety of horses is the duty of all industry stakeholders. Individuals who abuse horses have no place in racing and certainly have no place at any 1/ST RACING venue.”

The five racetracks owned by the Stronach Group include Golden Gate Fields in San Francisco, Calif., Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., Laurel Park in Laurel, Md., and Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md.
