    I found it hard to believe Bol's positive - seems it was false

    Australian runner Peter Bol’s provisional suspension for testing positive to EPO has been lifted, effective immediately, after a test of his B sample did not confirm the A sample result.

    Sports Integrity Australia later released a statement saying its doping investigation into Bol is still ongoing, despite the lifting of his drug suspension.

    SIA said the suspension was lifted after Bol's B Sample produced an "atypical finding".

    The authority said it is still investigating whether any anti-doping rule violations have been committed, saying it could not put a time frame on those deliberations.

    It said an atypical finding "is not the same as a negative test result".

    That is one way of looking at it Phil
    But the B sample did not back up the A sample
    and I am siding with the Premier in saying he has been exonerated
    SIA on the other hand are not interested in coming out and saying we f***ed up

    and
    ZAC PHILLIPS
    and
    TAYLA NICHOLSON
    and
    ROB O’CONNELL

    Mr Zac Phillips has been charged with four offences pursuant to Rule 254(1). This Rule could be summarised as prohibiting the use of what is known as a blood spinning machine (“the machine”). Each of the offences relates to the use of the machine on a different horse or horses.

    Ms Tayla Nicholson has been charged with one offence resulting from the giving of permission to Mr Phillips to use the machine on two horses training by her. They were Muscletonian and Dreamer’s Delight, with the offence occurring between October 2020 and December 2020. The Charge is pursuant to Rule 239A.

    Mr Rob O’Connell faces one charge similar to that against Ms Nicholson and pursuant to Rule 239A. Mr O’Connell is also a licensed trainer and the horses involved were Magicool and Bigjimvalentine. The use of the machine is alleged to have occurred between August 2020 and November 2020.

    Mr Phillips faces an additional Charge of breaching AHRR 187(2) – the giving of false or misleading evidence or information


    There is no argument but that none of the three was aware of the introduction of Rule 254A(1). Each did not know that blood spinning had become a prohibited practice

    And we all believe in Fairytales !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Finally, there is the breach by Mr Phillips of Rule 187(2). When interviewed on 30 March 2021, he told the Stewards that he had borrowed the blood spinning machine from Mr Joe Pace, a licensed industry participant. It was not until 7 September 2021 that Mr Phillips informed the Stewards that it was in fact his own machine.

    As we have said in many cases of this type, the Stewards have enough to do without wasting valuable time pursuing lines of enquiry based on falsehoods


    WTF stewards didn't think it was worth pursuing where the machine came from - we are doomed

    Hmm, don't hold much hope if the effective penalty from blood doping is a total of 0 months disqualification/suspension. It's equivalent to using EPO! They may as well hand out EPO vials in show bags on Hunter cup night.

    The participants need to kick up a fuss on this. Integrity is one of the issues that will continue to drive people away from the industry.

    Participants don't do that and you would have to still believe the participants are horse lovers. I am afraid there are very few that have not been found guilty of something nowadays and I can think of some big names that still belt the crap out of their horses in close finishes - not horse lovers. That is how I feel today - that the industry including the stewards are a bit of a sham

    The most interesting question to be answered - should the stewards bother to ask - is how is David Moran involved in this seeing he was suspended from training and driving at the time.

    https://integrity.thetrots.com.au/ne...t-david-moran/

    He trained the pin-up horse at the time, Lochinvar Art, but the horse was in the name of Kent initially, then Lakey as he got closer to racing.

    It makes me wonder why Moran was given a soft-centered suspension, the only real penalty being some inconvenience to him, when a disqualification would leave no doubt of guilt when caught out being involved in the stable's operation.

    It's not all beer and skittles if your an "A" Grade trainer. Neither Kasey Kent or Rodney Lakey have had a starter this season or are listed as having any horses in their care.
