    Interesting read. What were they trying to hide? No vet available? No excavator?

    The other option would have been to call that knackery. Actually that is no longer an option as, thanks to the ABC awakening the inner animal activist in the general public, knackery operators refuse to take any branded horse. This includes freeze brands.

    It is alleged that Ms Tubbs presented the horse ‘Cash Lover’ to race at Ballarat on 8 January 2020 when not free of the prohibited substance Aminorex.

    http://www.harness.org.au/media-room...?news_id=43283

    Aminorex is an amphetamine-like stimulant drug banned in racing and other equestrian competitions because horses given clinical doses would be hyperactive and may perform better.

    A brassica plant that can be found growing in pastures across the United States can result in horses failing a drug test, research findings suggest

    I wouldn't think Yellow Rocket could be a factor as it is a Winter weed

    The race in question

    Any suspensions should not start until racing resumes.

    All people currently suspended/disqualified must have their sentence extended for whatever time racing is shut down.
    Don't die wondering !

    Looking forward to hearing the outcome of the stewards inquiry into the trot at Bendigo Thursday just gone.
    Rumours of “excessive whip use”.

    Heard that rumour too John and for once it may be that the horse was not the recipient

    RACE 4 – HYGAIN MAIDEN TROT (2150 MS)

    The Night King and Singing The Girl contacted marker pegs rounding the final turn.

    Arrjays Trapper tired over the concluding stages to be beaten 74m for which a warning was issued.

    Stewards opened an inquiry into the conduct of Haydon Gray (Just Oscar) and Derrick Krafft (Singing The Girl) during and following the running of this race. After taking evidence from Mr Gray, Mr Krafft, Gary Donaldson (Angski) and Starter Mr Jason Fino this matter was adjourned to a time and date to be fixed. As a result of the evidence adduced during the inquiry submissions were sought from Mr Gray as to whether the provisions of Rule 183(b) should be invoked. After consideration of the submissions from Mr Gray, Stewards ordered that in accordance with Rule 183(b) he not be permitted to drive in races and trials until the completion of this investigation including pending the final determination of any charges which may be issued by Stewards for determination by the Victorian Racing Tribunal.

    As a result of this incident Mr Gray was removed from his remaining drives, Race 6 – Rocknroll Noah (replaced by Anthony Crossland) and Race 7 – Rigondeaux (replaced by Maddie Ray)

    The precedent to this incident was Don Dove receiving 12 months disqualification, as opposed to suspension, for swiping Brian Gath across the chest in the home straight at the Showgrounds in the mid-1970's. Dovey was driving the leader and Brian was challenging from the death. Caused a great deal of controversy at the time, Dovey paid dearly for his brain fade.

    Drives like that of Rodney Petroff on Segesta in R3 at Kilmore need a big fine so that they know they have to fill their allocated barrier position, not choose where they want to go
    He drew 7 but had no intention of filling that spot and was already angling for the SR2 position

    Highlight of that replay for me was the work of Brad Chisholm when out of contention to help control the driverless horse and prevent any possible injuries or further drama.
