The Iavorone backstory for those who didn't follow it at the time.

Iavarone Ready to Re-Enter Racing
By Bill Finley

Michael Iavarone, the founder of IEAH Stables, which enjoyed a spectacular ride before imploding, is planning to get back into Thoroughbred ownership and says he’s ready to make another significant investment in the sport.

Iavarone said this time around his only partner will be his wife, Jules, and that he is not interested in forming another racing syndicate or taking on other partners.

“I’m going to do it on my own and only worry about myself and not anyone else,” he said. “I’m definitely going to get back into the game and I’m going to do it on a significant scale. I only like to play at the higher end. I don’t like to dabble around with lower-end horses.”

Iavarone had hoped to make a big splash upon his return as he said he was in negotiations to purchase GII Fountain of Youth S. winner Gunnevera (Dialed In). Though he didn’t land Gunnevera, he said he is actively looking to buy other top-class horses and believes it may be only a matter of weeks before he has his first starter of the year.

The IEAH story started as one of the great success stories in the sport’s history. Iavarone and partner Richard Schiavo, unknowns in the racing industry, started the syndicate in 2003 and almost immediately built a stable filled with stars. Their greatest talent, of course, was 2008 GI Kentucky Derby and GI Preakness S. winner Big Brown (Boundary), but there were others. IEAH stakes winners included Eclipse Award winner Benny the Bull (Lucky Lionel), GI Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Kip Deville (Kipling), multiple Grade I winner Court Vision (Gulch) and GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Stardom Bound (Tapit).

But IEAH was often far from a feel-good story. Their trainer was the controversial Rick Dutrow, Jr., who is currently serving a 10-year suspension for drug violations. And IEAH, like many racing ownership groups that grew too quickly for their own good, was having trouble keeping its head above water financially. In order to keep the business going, IEAH was accepting money from James Tagliaferri, who was investing money on behalf of his clients and receiving kickbacks for doing so from IEAH and other companies. The kickbacks were disguised as consulting fees for Tagliaferri. In 2014, Tagliaferri was found guilty of investment adviser fraud, securities fraud and wire fraud as part of schemes that caused his clients to lose $50 million.

Iavarone and Schiavo were never charged with any crimes.

Japanese-Based Into Mischief Colt Could Try Derby Trail
Delta Barows (Into Mischief), who opened his account at first asking with an impressive four-length success over a rain-affected Tokyo turf course Oct. 21, may make his next start on the dirt, according to a report on Yahoo Japan.

A $200,000 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling and $200,000 Fasig-Tipton Florida juvenile, Delta Barows was hammered at the windows for the 1600-meter test last Saturday and was off as the 3-2 favorite in the full field of 18 newcomers. Away smartly, the bay colt settled in second down the back of the course, was roused to the front in upper stretch and increased his margin to the wire (video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXfpozInHpc&feature=youtu.be).

Don't miss the 5th at Belmont today and firster Analyze It. It's been quite a while since a 2YO debuted more impressively on the grass. Dueled inside, which has been the worst part of the track for two weeks on the Widener, and drew off to win in 1:34.3, getting his last quarter in under 23 seconds. Very impressive.

Mckinzie (Street Sense x MGSW Runway Model) crushed in a 7F debut at SA for Baffert/Pegram.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
