Harness – Stewards Inquiry – Trainer Mr Gary Elson – ARTURUS NZ

Harness

RWWA Stewards have been advised by the ChemCentre in Perth, that cobalt at a concentration in excess of 100 micrograms per litre, being the threshold prescribed in the Harness Rules of Racing, has been detected in a urine sample taken from ARTURUS NZ at Gloucester Park on 3 November 2017 prior to it competing and finishing fourth in Race 9.

This finding has been verified by the Racing Analytical Services Laboratory (RASL) in Victoria.

Accordingly the Stewards will inquire into these reports on a date to be fixed which the Trainer of ARTURUS NZ, Mr. Gary Elson has been requested to attend.

Acting under the provisions of Harness Rule of Racing 183 (d) Stewards have directed that Mr Elson’s licence to train be suspended forthwith pending the outcome of the Stewards inquiry to the extent that he is not permitted to nominate or present any horses to race.
