Hollywood: Stute remains hospitalized


INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Retired trainer Mel Stute remained hospitalized early Tuesday after striking his head in a fall at his home last Saturday.

Stute was taken out of intensive care Monday and is expected to be hospitalized until the end of the week, according to his son, trainer Gary Stute.

“He doesn’t want to be in the hospital,” Gary Stute said. “They’ll keep him for a couple of more days.”

Mel Stute is best known as the trainer of Snow Chief, the champion 3-year-old colt of 1986.
