Trackwork riders stood down pending test results
13 October 2021
Two Queensland trackwork riders were stood down at trackwork this week after the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Integrity Investigations Team (IIT) carried out a human sampling operation at the Gold Coast.
The riders’ preliminary tests showed indications of a banned substance and they are not permitted to ride pending confirmatory analysis.
Another two riders returned preliminary results which will be further investigated.
The IIT operation included urine and breath sampling of 59 riders which also determined two riders to be unlicensed at the time.
