Trainer careerEdit

Schuttinger announced his retirement from riding on July 20, 1926, advising that he would immediately embark on a career as a trainer with W. T. Anderson's stable based at Saratoga Race Course. [1] In September of the following year he took charge of the racing stable of James Butler, the prominent owner of Empire City Race Track. [2] He remained with Butler until December 24, 1930, and on March 28, 1931, he took over the racing stable of Willis Sharpe Kilmer. Among the horses Schuttinger trained for Kilmer was the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame colt, Sun Beau. [3] He later simultaneously trained horses for Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney and Joseph M. Roebling.

Equally successful as a trainer as he had been as a jockey, Andy Schuttinger and his wife notably owned and raced horses he trained such as Pilate, Key Ring, Red Welt, Fortification, Fleetborough and probably their best runner, multiple stakes winner, Ferd. [4]

Andy Schuttinger began winding down his racing operations in 1952 and retired from the business. He died in 1971 in Florida at age seventy-eight.
