Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards have received a report from Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) confirming that a prohibited substance has been detected in a blood sample collected from the Logan McGill trained racehorse, Integrated.
The report relates to a post-race blood sample taken from Integrated after finishing third in the Bairs Hotel Leongatha Maiden Plate over 1100 metres at the Stony Creek Racecourse on 28 March 2018.
RASL reported that the blood sample was shown to contain Triamcinolone Acetonide (a corticosteroid) which is banned under the Australian Rules of Racing.
The Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory reported that it had detected Triamcinolone Acetonide within the reserve portion of the blood sample.
RV Stewards initially informed Mr McGill of the irregularity on 25 April 2018. He was today advised of the confirmatory findings and that Stewards are continuing their investigation.
