Office of Racing Integrity (ORI) have received advice from the Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) in Victoria that Cobalt above the prescribed threshold has been detected in a urine sample taken from Destreos NZ prior to it competing in race 3, at the Carrick Park Pacing Club meeting conducted on 31 December 2017.

The “B” sample has been sent to Racing Science Centre in Queensland for confirmation.

In accordance with ORI’s Harness protocol, upon receipt of the first certificate advising of an irregularity, pursuant to Rule 183A, the Stewards have ordered that Destreos NZ shall not compete or be nominated to race until the inquiry is concluded. This is effective immediately.

Trainer Mr Ken Rattray has been advised of the decision, and ORI will continue its investigations into this sample irregularity and the inquiry will be conducted in due course.

As the matter is under investigation, ORI will not make any further comments.
