    Without mentioning names but it is not like they are allegations the trainers have all been charged and do have positive swabs so horses did race with illegal levels of cobalt The only question i guess is how did the levels get there

    The Brent Zerafa 3mth suspension shows how big a broom they are wielding - more or less suspended for not tipping what he backed

    and the last 5 paragraphs of this comment piece by Patrick Bartley sheds more light on what he terms the 'media circus'

    The write ups are not a good look for the entire racing industry full stop and one would think with most penalties reduced by around the 50% making any appeals even harder however the really bad look for the industry is where punters at home tune into a monopoly for vision content and you have a wager in the belief you are getting the up to date info at the last minute from the mounting yard and you put your hard earned on it only to read the Steward Report that now makes you wonder what are the REAL market movers and what is not, very sad situation with more yet to come obviously

    NSW Stewards have advised today the following
    "Mr Brent Zerafa has lodged an all grounds appeal against conviction and penalty after being disqualified for 3 months by Racing NSW Stewards acting under AR175A, finding him guilty under that charge of conduct prejudicial to the image and/or interests of racing.
    Mr Zerafa has been granted a stay of proceedings in these terms by the panel: "On the application of the Appellant, which is not opposed by Stewards, penalty imposed by Stewards stayed until further order of the Panel."
    No date has been set for the appeal

    The whole judicial system is subject to extensive legal scrutiny these days and the Stewards have to ensure that there is no denial of natural justice.

    In the "good old days" many of these cases would have been wrapped up in a few days, a week at the most.

    It is tested by way of a urine sample Pat.
    Interesting between race interview on Racing.com with gallops trainer John Leek just now
    He has a positive to cobalt awaiting adjudication
    He said that he had a horse test with a 203 reading while another just got under with 190
    He said that prior to this he did not know what cobalt was
    He said that when his horses are in serious work they are fed Hygain and he now knows that cobalt is listed on the bag
    He said that nearing racing his horses are given B12 injections and that he did not know that there is cobalt in them
    Most interesting insight for me was that he said in the fortnight leading up to a horse racing they would be given a vitamin injection every 2nd day
