RWWA Stewards have been advised by the ChemCentre in Perth, that cobalt at a concentration in excess of 200 micrograms per litre, being the threshold prescribed in the Harness Rules of Racing, has been detected in a urine sample taken from DREAM TO BELIEVE at Northam on 16 January 2016 after it had competed and won in Race 7.
This finding has been verified by the Racing Analytical Services Laboratory (RASL) in Victoria.
Accordingly the Stewards will inquire into these reports and the Trainer of DREAM TO BELIEVE, Mr. Ross Miller has been requested to attend the Stewards inquiry, which will be held in the RWWA Stewards Room at Ascot on Wednesday 16 March at 10.00am.
