Is it time to open the makers mark?
It will be interesting to see who becomes the new trainer(s) of these bloke's former charges.
I hope they are carefull with the anti cribbing treatment!
I wish in these swab inquiries they would put the amounts of the drug detected just so people know the exact amounts found.
Have whoever you want on but don't ever have yourself on
Heaven forbid,I have absolutely no intention of re-opening the debate of thresholds for another rehashing but in 2013 if some infringements can draw out exceedences such as TCO2, why on Earth cannot amounts of other illegal substances not be published. In any Emergency Department you will find an I-Stat machine that can within 5 minutes of testing blood give a detailed and fairly accurate reading of blood chemistry (although narrow and is used as a first point blood test and does require more formal testing). The stuff coming back from Hong Kong is tested with super sensitive equipment. Surely a smidgin of what is being isolated could be published. I think anyone who is charged with the latest 'drug of choice?' capsaicin, is entitled to know just how much of the substance has been detected in the horses system.
Brad, whilst I agree that it appears only right that levels be released, the information/scuttlebut around the traps is that all the people that have been busted for capsaicin were getting it in a pre-mix drench which was being sold by someone who is currently disqualified, so there is nothing to be gained from releasing the levels except to provide usefull information to the makers and distributers of the drench?I think anyone who is charged with the latest 'drug of choice?' capsaicin, is entitled to know just how much of the substance has been detected in the horses system.
