Moses Disqualified For 12 Months
Sydney trainer Kevin Moses says he will fight a 12-month ban handed down by Racing NSW stewards on Friday, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. Moses was disqualified for presenting Felix Bay at Hawkesbury on 16 April with cobalt in its system. A pre-race sample showed the horse had a cobalt level in excess of the national threshold of 200 micrograms per litre of urine. Although Moses was not charged with administering the banned substance, Racing NSW stewards said the offence warranted a period of disqualification. "How, what, where and why has not been established and you have not been charged with administration," chief steward Ray Murrihy said. "But a cobalt positive brings a certain amount of discredit to the industry." Moses' disqualification will expire on 21st August 2016 on which day he may re-apply for a licence.
