Further prohibited substance notification for Trainer Ben Currie

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Stewards have today advised legal representatives for Toowoomba Trainer Ben Currie that a further prohibited substance has been detected in a sample taken from a horse he trains.

Stewards will allege Mr Currie brought the thoroughbred Eight Over to race on 2 February 2019 at Toowoomba with prohibited substances in its system. A sample from the horse was tested after winning race 3 on that day.

It is intended that the Stewards inquiry for this matter will be heard along with 4 inquiries relating to positive samples taken from Shakira, Wicked Trilogy, Karaharga and Dreamscope in 2018.

The date for the inquiry is yet to be determined.
