On Friday 10 July 2015, Harness Racing New South Wales (HRNSW), acting under the provisions of Rule 183, suspended the Trainer’s licence of Mr Neal Wardle, effective immediately.

It did so after receiving advice from the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory (ARFL) that Total Carbon Dioxide (TCO2) above the prescribed threshold was detected in a pre-race blood sample taken from Our Red Sky Night NZ prior to it running in race 6, THE GARRARDS HORSE AND HOUND PACE (1609 metres) conducted at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Tuesday 7 July 2015.

The “B” sample has been confirmed by Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) in Victoria.

Mr Wardle was given an opportunity to be heard on the imposition of Rule 183 and he provided submissions that were considered by HRNSW Stewards.

Acting under the provisions of Rule 183A, it has been determined that Our Red Sky Night NZ, the horse subject of the certificates, shall not be nominated or compete in any race until the outcome of an inquiry or investigation.

This also has immediate effect.

An inquiry has been scheduled for 2pm on Thursday 16 July 2015.
